Calipari says Liggins and Miller may go pro

Don't expect UK head basketball coach John Calipari to change his method of recruiting the "one and done" players unless the NBA changes its rules.

Calipari saying Tuesday UK will have young players for the foreseeable future as long as the NBA makes those players wait one year before becoming eligible for the draft.

Calipari also believes he could have a couple of guys pass up some eligibility after this season. Junior guard Deandre Liggins averaged only about 15 minutes of playing time and just under four points per game, but he could be counted on a lot more this season with the exodus of players from last year.

Calipari says Liggins and Darius Miller both may have a choice to make at season's end. He thinks both could catch the eye of the NBA. Miller played about 21 minutes per game last year and averaged 6-and-a-half points and 2-and-a-half rebounds per game.
