John Calipari has released the following statement about Kentucky senior Nate Sestina:
“I’m so disappointed that I’m not going to have another year to coach Nate and have him in our program. I know he’s disappointed and wanted to come back. He knew the chances weren’t great but that doesn’t make this hurt any less for him. Having said that, I’m proud of how he’s handled the whole thing. He was hopeful but has had a great attitude on what that next step will be for him.
“Nate had an unbelievable season and helped us achieve the level of success that we did.
