Kentucky coach John Calipari’s shooting touch is still there, even from long range.
The Hall of Famer proved that during Tuesday’s shootaround before the No. 18 Wildcats faced South Carolina in a late-evening Southeastern Conference contest. In a video posted on his official Twitter account, Calipari stepped up and drained a basket from center court to his players’ surprise.
The coach smiled as he walked off the court, showing the swagger and confidence he seeks from another young roster of freshmen and sophomores.
Then again, one key to a coach getting what he wants from players is showing them how it’s done.
