Why no zone?
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – John Calipari doesn’t play zone defense…and there’s a good reason why.
Even if it meant winning games and covering up a weak spot, Cal just doesn’t believe in hiding poor defenders.
He believes in making them better…or finding the guy who can defend man-to-man.
The Cats don’t practice zone. The media often asks Cal why he doesn’t use it at least in spots.
The answer has been, and will always be, very simple.
If it ain’t in the NBA, you won’t see it at UK.
Because if Cal hides players in zone defense…he’s not helping them reach the next level.
Hear from Cal in the video.
