Darnell Dodson won't play for Kentucky

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Kentucky coach John Calipari says junior guard Darnell Dodson will not play for the Wildcats this season.

Calipari posted on his Facebook page Sunday night that while Dodson is academically eligible, he won't be with the team when it travels to Canada for a series of exhibition games later this month. Calipari gave no reason behind the decision.

Dodson averaged 6.0 points as a sophomore last season, leading Kentucky with 50 3-pointers.

Calipari says Dodson could return to the team "if he meets our standards."
