Kentucky’s assistants are as competitive in their offices and on the recruiting trail as Matthew Mitchell expects his players to be on the playing floor.
He thinks that bodes well for the future.
Their fire really attracted Mitchell to Adeniyi Amadou and Christian Stefanopoulos.
“I just needed some incredible competitive, aggressive energy in recruiting and they both had that,” he said, noting that they’re competitive (in a good way) with each other.
Stefanopoulos joked that they’ve started competing to see who will leave his or her office last each day.
“We complement each other really, really well,” Stefanopoulos said “I learn from him every day and that’s talking about things that we might disagree about, but when the conversation is over, we are on the same page. To me, that’s worth more than anything.”
