Rivals John Calipari, Rick Pitino meet today

LEXINGTON, Ky. — John Calipari doesn’t mind a good feud.

This is the same coach who recalls his infamous postgame run-in with Temple’s John Chaney 16 years ago — in which Chaney challenged Calipari to a fight in front of reporters — with a smile.
Yet the Kentucky coach insists there will be no such fireworks today when he and Louisville coach Rick Pitino stand across the scorer’s table from each other as the third-ranked Wildcats (14-0) host the Cardinals (10-3) at Rupp Arena.
