GAINSVILLE, Fl (WYMT)- John Calipari announced Saturday on Twitter, Sophomore Guard Ashton Hagans did not travel with the team to Gainsville Florida for the final game of the regular season.
Ashton did not make the trip with us to Florida. He and I met a couple days ago and he asked to step away for a couple days for personal reasons. I support his decision. We are going to need him at 100% for the postseason.
