In part two of four-part preseason Q and A, John Calipari discusses how his team will play, why this will be more of a Dribble Drive team, rule changes and Marcus Lee.
John Calipari still had 35 minutes left of skill instruction with his team this week, so he got the guys together again on Tuesday and had his team scrimmage for most of the practice.
John Calipari is nothing if not an idea man. The trait extends to every facet of his position as head coach of Kentucky basketball, including his team’s style of play. Some coaches find offensive and defensive systems and stand by them no matter the circumstances, but not Calipari.
Check out some notes and quotes from John Calipari’s radio appearance on “The Leach Report.”
As Kentucky prepares to audition what it has built in practice the two weeks since Big Blue Madness, Coach Cal cautioned Tuesday that he’s still tinkering with how the Wildcats will play this season.
We just finished up our first six full-length practices since Big Blue Madness. We put the guys through four practices over the weekend and then ran them through one Monday and one again Tuesday. They’ll get the day off Wednesday to recharge, but we’ll have a hard practice lined up for them Thursday.
On Saturday, it was pedal to the metal as Coach Cal ran the team through two two-hour practices.
