The NCAA is making the University of Kentucky change coach John Calipari's win total from 500 to 458 due to the 42 vacated victories from violations that occurred during his times at Memphis and Massachusetts.

In a statement, Kentucky said it had consulted with the NCAA and determined it was "in error" to have celebrated Calipari's 500th career win against Florida on Feb. 26.
The school had debated the issue with the NCAA because Calipari was never found to be at fault for the violations that led to the vacated wins.
