.@CamRonFletcher1 came so far as a teammate and as a player this season. He improved in all areas and I wish he would have had more opportunities to show everything he worked on. He matured as a person this season and I know he will have great success in whatever path he chooses. https://t.co/Hw92vpcea2— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) March 13, 2021
