Calipari Apologizes For Tirade

((HT: WLEX-TV Lexington))

Kentucky coach John Calipari has apologized for his tirade toward freshman Terrence Jones last night after the Wildcats loss to Alabama.

Calipari apologized on his Twitter and Facebook pages saying he "got caught up in the emotion of the game," but added that it isn't an excuse.

Coach Cal was hacked at Jones for what he thought was playing outside the team ideal. Jones finished with 17 points against Alabama, but committed four turnovers and took the final play as time expired.

Calipari wanted Doron Lamb to shoot.

Here's Kent Spencer from WTVQ-TV/ABC36 in Lexington with the highlights...

Jones responded on his Twitter feed last night...
"If ur saying ur parents never said anything to you that hurt ur feelings and then apologized to you after ur lying. I'm happy and blessed for playing for Cal. Don't think otherwise."
