CoachCal.com’s new practice report will get you excited for basketball

Eric Lindsey over at CoachCal.com attended UK’s 90-minute practice yesterday and he has a lengthy report for you on the website this morning. Lindsey has several notes and observations, almost all positive, including individual specifics on all of the guys.

Have a small taste in this exciting excerpt about Alex Poythress:

The last guy I expected to lead off with just because he’s been around for two years is Alex Poythress, but I think his effort and his improvement merit that. We all know how athletic he is and the type of plays he can make, but he looked lighter on his feet than I’ve ever seen him. He seemed to glide through the air on Monday, a fascinating thing to watch for someone with his body frame. I have no idea how that will translate on to the court in October and November because, as I just said, we’ve seen bits and pieces of that in his first two years, but I do see a more confident player than the one I’ve seen the last two seasons. He’s never going to be a vocal guy, but when I saw him, on one particular play, race from the top of the key, sky over Karl-Anthony Towns and Marcus Lee in the paint, grab the offensive rebound, and bank the ball back in the basket in traffic, it gave me the feeling that we’re going to see a much-improved Alex Poythress this year.

Other notable impressions from Lindsey:

— Tyler Ulis will be a fan favorite

— The twins and Dakari are in better shape

— Devin Booker is doing just fine

— Cal is still preaching, “Play fast, think slow.”

    It will be Yum watching these angelitas water their shorts when Montrez dunks on them—and dunks on them.

    Birds. Redbirds. Nasty Redbirds who attack kittens.

      UofL fans get more pitiful by the year. Montrezrlrzl is a glorified garbage player who wouldn’t even see the floor if he was on this UK team!

      Red Louie has to be a UK fan just kidding around. I mean, Louisville fans aren’t that stupid, are they?

    I’m already excited for basketball, but this just gets me more pumped up. How can we not be that pumped with this team coming back? http://www.straighthoops.com/one_and_not_done.html

    “Am I being mean? I’m not being mean. This is how I coach. When I ask a question … there is no wrong answer.” I love this quote from Cal.

      also, how did that Montrez dunking thing work out for you last year? About the same as it will this year.
