08:16 AM ET 11.08 | During a win of 85 points (yes, 85) is perhaps not the best gauge of a defensive challenge, though the effort wasn't lost on John Calipari. Much to [Calipari's] chagrin, Kentucky played an effective 2-3 zone for much of the final six minutes of Monday night's 125-40 exhibition victory over Morehouse College. "I hate to say this: We looked like a pretty good zone team," the UK coach said. ... So why did Calipari lament the possibility of UK being effective in a zone? Because teams are better perfecting one defense rather than using multiple approaches, he said. Calipari prefers man-to-man. Noting that Syracuse, Temple under John Cheney and Arizona State are identified with zone defense, Calipari said, "If they have to do man-to-man or press, they're not as good."
