Cal distances himself from talk of Kanter suing NCAA
Calipari said on his radio show Monday night that Kanter could sue in hopes of a court slapping an injunction on the NCAA’s ruling that Kanter is permanently ineligible.
When asked about the lawsuit option by reporters Tuesday, Calipari feinted ignorance.
“Did I say sue?” he said.
When reported nodded in the affirmative, Calipari said, “Wow, strong statement.”
A lawsuit would be an option for Kanter and his family to consider, the UK coach said. The NCAA ruled Kanter permanently ineligible because he played three seasons for a professional team in his native Turkey. UK is appealing that ruling.
