Would John Calipari consider using a zone defense when Kyle Wiltjer is on the floor to provide more defensive help for his sophomore?
Apparently not based on what Calipari said Friday.
“Well, we’d have to play him in the middle. You can’t play him on a wing in the zone because they’d do the same thing. Now, what do you think they’d do if you put him in the middle of the zone? They’re going to try to go to the middle of our zone. It’s hard. Like any other coach, if I know there’s a match out there, I’m going to go at him until that other coach takes him out of the game. That’s what a good coach does,” Calipari said.
“So, now if you want to stay on the court, you better figure it out. You better figure it out. What do you want to do? Do you want to come off the floor or do you want to play? And, what happens is that when they’re in that desperate mode, normally they’ll figure it out.”
