Kentucky Basketball Player Asked To Step Away From Team

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Coach John Calipari has asked one of his players to step away from the team for a while.

In a Tweet, Calipari says he has asked freshman forward Cam'Ron Fletcher to "take some time and step away from the team" to "reflect and do some soul searching to get his priorities in order."

Fletcher's departure comes after he was seen on the bench in tears towards the end of Kentucky's 75-63 loss to North Carolina over the weekend. Calipari said after the loss Fletcher had expressed displeasure with his lack of playing time.

Calipari says he's spoken to both Fletcher and his mother and that they "understand that changes need to be made."
