Kentucky coach John Calipari was front and center first thing Sunday morning as St. Mark's School (Mass) lost a nail-biter to Life Center Academy (N.J.) at the Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass. Calipari made the trip, along with assistant Orlando Antigua, which makes a significant statement that Kentucky was jumping in with both feet when it comes to the recruitment of both St, Mark's Super 60 prospects Kaleb Tarczewski and Alex Murphy. While Calipari positioned himself in very visible positions -- sitting front row at midcourt in the first half and front row on the baseline in the second half -- Murphy was so focused on the game he didn't even realize the Kentucky skipper was in the building.
