John Calipari the Head Coach of the Kentucky Wildcats gives instructions to his team during the game against the Penn Quakers at Rupp Arena on January 3, 2011 in Lexington, Kentucky.  Kentucky won 86-62.


Kentucky coach John Calipari didn't stick around to do postgame interviews after the 13th-ranked Wildcats crushed LSU 82-44 on Saturday, citing the need to get a head start on a recruiting visit.

The undermanned Tigers appeared to beat Calipari out of Rupp Arena by a good two hours.

Brandon Knight scored 19 points, Terrence Jones added 17 in his second game coming off the bench and the Wildcats (14-3, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) wasted little time putting away the Tigers. Kentucky led by 11 less than eight minutes into the game, was up 29 at the half and kept right on going.
