John Calipari notched his 500th career victory as a head coach Saturday in Kentucky's 76-68 win over Florida.
Calipari's wins span stints at Massachusetts, Memphis and UK. After the game, Calipari was presented the game ball by Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart while an honorary video showed on the video boards in Rupp Arena.
"All I was worried about was No. 20," Calipari said of UK securing a 20-win season. "That's all I was worried about. You coach long enough and you survive. I've been fired once, but you survive, you win some ballgames.
"I appreciate all of the players and staff that I've had. Hopefully I've helped them develop and reach their dreams, but the reality of it is I was only worried about Florida."
