09:51 AM ET 04.28 | On a recent recruiting trip, Missouri Coach Frank Haith found himself sitting between John Calipari and Roy Williams. This would be akin to having Rand Paul on your right and Barack Obama on your left, so to speak. Professional courtesies aside, they figure to ultimately disagree. The paths diverged when Williams mentioned that he planned to take his North Carolina team to the Maui Invitational in 2016. Kentucky apparently won't be returning to Maui ... while Calipari is coach. "Cal did say, it's too long a trip," Haith recalled. "He just brought it up." Calipari has made no secret of how he dislikes the arduous trip to and from Maui. "That's legit," Haith said of Calipari's concerns about traversing across five time zones. "He hates it. It's just too far for him." And how did the North Carolina coach react when Calipari recoiled at the idea of taking another team to Hawaii? "Well, Roy said, 'I'm going every four years,'" Haith said with a laugh. "He did."
