Bill Clinton called John Calipari on Sunday to talk UK hoops

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Kentucky is starting to hit its stride this season, rolling past Providence on Sunday to start the month of December. The loss to Michigan State a few weeks ago is in the rear-view mirror, and the young Wildcats are starting to play together as a team. It's a scary thought for opponents.

John Calipari's team is entering a very difficult stretch in their schedule, though, with Baylor, Boise State, North Carolina, Belmont and Louisville coming up.

What better way to get an extra boost of energy than getting a call from President Bill Clinton?

Name-dropper.
