– If you missed it earlier, John Calipari’s mysterious “out of the box” training technique he’s been using in practice is monitoring the players’ heart rates, exertion rates, and calories burned via heart rate monitors. It’s not quite as exciting as my guess (a magic wand), but it’s another example of how Cal is staying ahead of the curve. Cal said that the heart monitors not only allow him to see which players aren’t giving their all, but to know when he’s pushing his players too hard. He also said they’re burning 5,500 to 6,000 calories today, which has led to some interesting health discussions in the comments section this afternoon.
– I just needed to see this dunk by Willie Cauley-Stein again:
– John Wall is finally back on the practice court and went through some contact drills today. Wizards guard A.J. Price said Wall looked like his normal self: “He’s still the same player. Fast. Aggressive. He looked good. Looked like his old self.” Wizards beat writer Michael Lee says Wall is inching closer to game form, but that conditioning is an issue.
– Nike announced today that the Jordan Brand Classic will take place in the Barclays Center on April 13th. The event will feature eighteen of the top high school players in the country and the rosters will be announced in February. Something tells me we’ll recognize
most all of them. It will be televised live on ESPN2.
– We’re only a week away from SEC play, and there are still plenty of tickets available to the UK/Vandy game in Nashville. Come laugh at Kevin Stallings with me, it will be fun.
– Speaking of Stallings, it looks like he lost his temper a little bit last night in the ‘Dores 64-50 win over William & Mary. Stallings called a timeout with 1:08 left in the game to yell at his team for their complacent play (they were up by 12). He was so angry that he slammed his clipboard down, breaking it into two pieces and shattering a dry erase marker. It’s okay, Kevin. After the last episode, the Vandy staff has learned to keep your tacos separate from the rest of the team’s.
– Finally, I see you on the front page of Yahoo, Andrew and Aaron Harrison:
On today’s show, Matt and Ryan discussed the win over Eastern Michigan, the Cards’ big Sugar Bowl victory, and some Hooters girls stopped by the studio. Podcast after the jump.
