Cal says Archie is still a work in progress

Mrs. Tyler Thompsonover 8 years


On this morning's SEC Coaches' Teleconference, John Calipari said that the staff is still trying to "figure out" Archie Goodwin. Cal said that Archie has the mentality and drive to be a special player, but that's he's still "learning his way" and being too hard on himself:
"(He's) too hard on himself, a la Derrick Rose. If he misses one shot, it leads to three more misses. If he turns it over, he can’t defend on the other end. Hasn’t put the emphasis on rebounding yet. But he’s a freshman. He’s doing well, and he’s gotten better as the year’s gone on. But opening up his mind, playing through mistakes, playing through turnovers, being in better balance and control, slowing down your mind — it takes years to learn that."
Random Cal quote of the day: "These iPads are ridiculous, and you really can get stuff on those iPads for your staff and team quickly. You can blow through tapes much faster and with less frustration where you press a button and it goes too far ahead. I mean, they’ve got it down to a science, so it is much easier." Don't lie, Cal. You just like your iPad so you can watch the "Hey Soul Sister" music video.
