Alex Poythress will travel with the team to Cleveland

alex1 The UK bench was missing one very important person this past weekend: Alex Poythress. Last night on his call-in show, John Calipari said Alex went back to Clarksville for spring break, giving up his seat on the bench to one of the walk-ons. "He just went home for spring break. He'll be traveling with us to Cleveland," Cal said. "We can only have so many guys on the bench, so he wanted Tod, Brian, Sam, and EJ all to be able to be on the bench." Cal said that Tod will sit in the stands this week like he did during the SEC Tournament, but at least he'll be able to tell his kids one day he played in the Tournament during UK's historic season. "As you've noticed, I made sure Tod, Sam, Brian and EJ all got in that first game, so now they were all in the NCAA Tournament game and a part of this run we made." Marcus Lee told me last week that Alex was focusing on his rehab during spring break, and Cal said last night that Alex's rehab is going "great." The bench just didn't feel the same without him.
