UK will change Calipari’s record to reflect vacated wins

After the NCAA told UK that honoring John Calipari’s 500th career victory last season was in error due to previously vacated wins, UK will now change his record in publications. The official statement:

After consulting with the NCAA, the University of Kentucky has been informed that the honoring of our head men’s basketball coach for his 500th career victory on Feb. 26, 2011 was in error and that, henceforth, we will reflect our head men’s basketball coach’s career record in our media guides, Internet sites and other publications consistent with the NCAA’s official records and statistics.

That means Calipari now officially has 467 wins, placing him 33 away from 500. Getting back to that figure is conceivable for the end of this year; UK went 35-3 in Calipari’s first year at UK.
