John Calipari assesses Kentucky Basketball after loss to Kansas Jayhawks

New, comments

Cal points out his team's weaknesses but loves their fight and drive to reach their potential.

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Kansas Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

John Calipari has watched the tape of Kentucky’s Champions Classic loss to Kansas, and he gave his thoughts on it on his Twitter page on Wednesday. He talked about his team fighting for the basketball and learning to play winning basketball in the final four minutes.

PJ Washington struggled to play out of that post on Tuesday, and with the lack of knowledge of how to move the ball when being doubled, he had to come out.

Rebounding was the biggest issue for the whole game, but especially the first half. Calipari thinks that should certainly change in the future.

I like Cal owning up to needing to teach them crunch-time basketball. Him tweeting that reminds me of the Wisconsin loss in the Final Four.

And Calipari reiterates what everyone needs to remember: it’s a process, and a long one at that, with a team this young and inexperienced.

Perhaps we’ll be getting Calipari film breakdowns via Twitter all season?
