Will UK women be hooked up to heart monitors, too?

Coach John Calipari announced via his website this week that his team is hooked up to heart monitors to make sure they’re working to their maximum potential each practice and game. Kentucky women’s coach Matthew Mitchell laughed when he was asked on Friday if he was utilizing a similar device. Here’s what he had to say:

“We don’t have time to put them on; we just have to get up and go. I’m probably not smart enough to read one or anything or even know what one looks like.”

He thought for another second or two, then added: “They probably should hook me up to one, that’s what probably they should do.”
