John Calipari takes his number one ranked Wildcats to Mississippi State Tuesday night riding an 18 game winning streak. Tipoff is at 9pm with the game televised by ESPN.
Calipari said Monday his team did some things better in some areas in Saturday's win over Ole Miss.
“I thought we did some things defensively that we hadn’t done, they made some shots that kind of
surprised me. Our press has got to get better if we are going to use it, it stinks right now and that’s
not their fault I really haven’t broken it down. We’re going to do some stuff today; I don’t think they
have a mental picture of what I’m looking for because they aren’t very good in it. The zone offense,
I think we are getting better but we have a long way to go. I would predict this team will play us
zone 60 pct. of the time, they are not going to want to bring their big people out in the pick-androlls.
It’s all good though, we’ve got to get prepared to go in a tournament game and somebody play
us forty minutes of zone and us be prepared to play against it.”
