(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)Kentucky pulled out a big win at LSU tonight to push its record to 24-0, but if you believe John Calipari, there were times tonight when he would have welcomed 23-1. Karl-Anthony Towns’ was called for a technical for hanging on the rim midway through the second half, which led to this amazing post-game moment on ESPN. As much fun as that videobomb is, Calipari was livid about the foul, at that point in the game. In the interview he said that he told the team that he hoped they would lose after the foul, and reiterated that point to open his post-game press conference. Calipari goes on to praise his talented freshman as a player and a person, but clearly this mistake, which could have proven incredibly costly in what wound up being a two point game, really bothered him.Kentucky hosts South Carolina this Saturday at 2 p.m.last_img
