Tuesday Quickies: Making Tweaks Edition

John Calipari said he made a couple of tweaks in practice to help Kentucky’s offense

NCAA Basketball: NC-Greensboro at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Stop if you’ve heard this before.

John Calipari is making tweaks for this Kentucky team as they struggle to find their identity on the offensive end of the floor.

“I made a couple tweaks in a couple of the ways we were playing offensively that I think will help us,” Calipari said on Monday. “And I talked them through it, said “This is what we are going to do, I want to try some of this.” So this whole season is going to be that way, my guess, including who we play.”

Kentucky’s offense looked completely out of sorts at times against Seton Hall, and the Wildcats continue to struggle to maintain any kind of consistency while struggling with outside shooting.

But Calipari said he has implemented a couple tweaks that he believes will help get the offense rolling. Calipari gave the word “tweak” some prominence during the 2013-2014 season as Kentucky made a run to the NCAA Championship game, but he’s also used it since when the team has struggled.

So what could be the tweaks? I guess we will have to wait and see.
