LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — University of Kentucky men's basketball head coach John Calipari said he understands how much the tournaments means to the fans and their disappointment at not being able to cheer the team on in person.

And he said the players, too, would much rather play in a full stadium.

Calipari made the comments Wednesday night on his Twitter account.

He said that at the end of the day, the health and well-being of student-athletes, coaches and fans take priority.

Calipari said he knows the team's fan base will show their support in other ways.
