Pick-and-Roll - In this segment, Calipari focuses on a hesitation move to read the big and gain the separation needed to drive around or split defenders.
To finish the practice, Calipari has his guards play a continuous full court 1-on-1 drill that progresses into a 2-on-2 that forces players to score on the fastbreak, guard the dribble and play through the physical nature of the opponent.
