Calipari talks of playing rotations

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - UK coach John Calipari went on a Washington, D.C. radio station Monday to promote his new book and he talked about the issue of playing time when it comes to next season.

Calipari will have two juniors, six sophomores and four talented freshmen on his roster. Speaking on 106.7 The Fan, ee threw out the idea of playing rotations.

"We may play this like a pro franchise in that, there are rotations. As a starter you're gonna get this many minutes, as his backup you're gonna get this many minutes. You're gonna know when you'll go in the game. Then when you hit March you narrow it down to eight guys, seven guys you're playing. But throughout the year you just make sure you're a deep team, you can withstand foul trouble, injuries, anything else that goes wrong. So you play a lot of people and your whole drive is March".
