07:32 AM ET 02.04 | Generally speaking, John Calipari has been hostile to playing zone. Yet, Kentucky got good mileage out of playing zone at Missouri last weekend. Doesn't Calipari love man-to-man defense? "He loves to win even more," guard Andrew Harrison said. When asked about zone defense as a regular part of Kentucky's approach the rest of the season, assistant Coach Orlando Antigua offered a cryptic response. "Uh, we've been working on it a lot," he said to reporters Monday. "That's all I'll give you." Antigua, who substituted for Calipari at the regular day-before-the-game news conference, noted that UK had worked on zone in past seasons. Calipari is good at tailoring strategies to best fit a team's strengths and weaknesses, he said. "We have length and size," which could enhance a zone, Antigua said.
