Where were you at 2:30am this morning?
Kentucky basketball players Terrence Jones and Stacey Poole were involved in a car accident in Lexington at that time. Both players received minor injuries when the SUV they were riding in was struck by a man eventually charged with DUI.
The players weren’t breaking a team rule by being out at 2:30am. But that’s about to change according to John Calipari:
“Because of the actions of a select few, this team has showed me an inability to make proper judgment and decisions that they’ve been given the freedom to make. Therefore, going forward, this team will now have a curfew for the rest of the season…
We hold our players to a higher standard at Kentucky. They must learn that they’ve been placed in a leadership role and that every action defines this team, this state and its fans. As always, any additional punishment will be handled within the team.”
A third, unidentified person was driving the SUV when it was hit by the alleged drunk driver.
UPDATE — There is some debate as to whether Jones — who’s still underage — was drinking at the time of the accident.
