For the first time since FBI documents this morning showed that Kentucky was involved in the FBI college basketball scandal, John Calipari spoke to the media, offering little more information than what’s already been released.

“I know nothing more than you guys know, and that’s why there is no reason for me to speak on it,” Calipari said.

Deputy Director Athletics Director DeWayne Peevy opened the press conference before Calipari spoke, also confirming that they didn’t know anything new. Peevy interrupted the press conference numerous times when media asked Calipari questions relating to the FBI scandal.

While Peevy and Calipari didn’t share anything new, Calipari did update the status of Kevin Knox, who is the only current UK player listed on the documents. Calipari said he believes Knox will play, but nothing has been decided as of Friday afternoon.

Before fielding questions relating to tomorrow’s basketball game against Missouri, Calipari did admit he was disappointed about the news released this morning.

“For all of basketball, this stuff, yeah, but again, the statement I made is for me where we stand and how I feel about it,” Calipari said.
