We’ve seen Jarrod Polson this season. He’s provided a needed break when either of the Harrison twins gets into foul trouble. But we don’t ever see Madisonville’s Jon Hood as much as we saw him Saturday afternoon in Starkville, Mississippi.

John Calipari was looking for energy, and he got it in the form of his two little-used but always-ready-to-contribute seniors.
