Kentucky has had a knack for playing its best basketball at the right time of the season most years since John Calipari arrived as head coach.
Most years he’s been able to back off his team a little late in the year to have it fresh for postseason play. This year he’s still got some work to do.
“I’d like to be able to empower them more offensively so that I don’t have to lead what they’re doing. And we’re not quite there yet,” Calipari said after the win at Ole Miss Tuesday.
“So, we’ve got a couple weeks to figure out without calls what do we run. I’m still literally tying to figure (things out). I put new stuff in today for today’s game. None of you would know it because you don’t know basketball, but I put in a couple of different offenses today that we tried. They both worked by the way.”
Pat yourself on the back, Coach. Just joking. That just shows the “swaggy” Calipari that likes his team maybe more than he wants to admit right now.
And get ready for a TWEAK.
“We’re still tweaking, experimenting with stuff. We’ve got to get PJ on the other side of the floor. So instead of just the left side facing, I wanted him on the other side,” Calipari said. So, we did something to get him over there. Now if you go back and watch the tape you’ll know what I did or what I had the players do.”
