John Calipari shuts down ‘overrated’ chants by UK fans

In the same way PJ shut down Grant Williams. Saturday was a fun one in Rupp Arena, as the Kentucky Wildcats crushed the Tennessee Volunteers in convincing fashion.

As you can imagine, those thoughts were running through the heads of many UK fans going into Saturday, especially once their Cats began running the Vols...
