Tom Leach's thoughts on the first UK practice under Coach Cal.

Here's a taste: "Watching the practice, I got the notion that his system is kinda like football's west coast offense. It's not about designed plays but instead is based on the quarterback and his receivers reading and reacting to how the defense plays them. If the point guard, i.e. quarterback, can take it to the hole, that's the first option but he if reads that he can't get there, then he kicks it off to the best option versus how the defense is reacting to the attack. There was a lot of talk about staring down a defender when the dribbler is driving upcourt, to get him back on his heels and enable you to blow past him. And there was plenty of coaching on making the simple play rather than worrying about what will get you on Sportscenter."
