Back like he never left, new UK associate basketball coach Orlando Antigua answered a phone call from Kentucky Sports Radio on Monday for an interview about his return to John Calipari’s coaching staff. An assistant under Calipari at Kentucky during a very successful run from 2009-14, Antigua returns to help lift the program back to where it belongs after a dip in recruiting and in the win column.
Among the topics in Coach O’s discussion with KSR, he explains what he intends to bring to the familiar program in need, as well as a little about who he brings with him from Illinois. We also heard his first public comments about the players already on the team he is joining, in addition to the players he, Chin Coleman, Jai Lucas and Calipari will try to recruit for the return to glory.
