John Calipari wants Alex Poythress to play with greater focus for longer stretches of games.

“Play the whole game the way you’re playing in spurts,” Calipari said. “Just do it.”

Poythress has looked nearly unstoppable at times.

“I see where he’s coming from,” Poythress said. “Sometimes I do have mental lapses. I’ve just got to decrease those mental lapses and I should be fine. (During such lapses) I’m just thinking more instead of reacting.”
