Kentucky Coach John Calipari Pleads for NCAA to Not Expand March Madness Tournament

  • 4 months ago
Kentucky Wildcats coach John Calipari would like to see the NCAA tournament remain as it is. The tournament featured a 64-team field from 1989 to 2010 and expanded to 68 teams with the initial First Four round in 2011. But recent reports have indicated there is ongoing speculation the NCAA could further expand the tournament to showcase no more than 80 teams. Calipari, who has taken Kentucky to the Big Dance in 12 of his 15 seasons at the helm, is not a fan of that idea.
