Does it exist??
Before Monday's game I had read the reports about Calipari planning on using a new "funky" zone. There were several articles out there talking about it. Those stories had the players unable to describe it.
Now, I love the word "CalZone". Sounds like a promotion for Pizza Hut. But, does this thing really exist? I only got to watch the first half of Monday's game (and not very attentively, at that), but I didn't see anything that looked like a zone defense (except a few trapping full-court pressure zones).
Maybe I missed it. What I did see was a lot of confusion on defense and a lack of focus. I did notice that there seemed to be an effort to collapse on the ball when it went inside, which matched up with some of what Coach Cal has said about having to try to do such things to make up for the lack of size inside.
But, where was this fabled zone?
Did I just not notice it?
