Bruce Pearl looks to avoid post-Kentucky letdown

Talking Points for 3/2/10:

  • John Calipari is poo-pooing the effect of the zone defense that Tennessee has used with great effect against the Kentucky Wildcats, saying it's not so much the zone that beats them, it's their poor outside shooting. Which, of course, is what the zone is designed to force. So when Pearl somehow figures out a way to force Kentucky to take all shots by bouncing them off their heads soccer-style, it won't be an amazing strategic ploy, it will be that they don't shoot well with their noggins.
  • Big "job interview" for Eric Berry today at the NFL Combine, as everyone will be expecting him to run a sub-4.4 forty.
  • Videos of the day: Weezy and Pearl.
