finally revealed the infamous tweak he made to his team before the tournament while making an appearance on “ This Morning” Monday.

The tweak, it turns out, was very simple, and most probably noticed it at some point during ’s run.

Calipari explained that the big tweak was simply making his point guard, Andrew Harrison, focus on passing more than shooting.

Calipari tried to get Andrew to model his game after all-star Deron Williams, who is a big-time scorer but also distributes the ball really well.

“I was trying to make the game easier for Andrew Harrison, my point guard, and I got tapes of Deron Williams, who averaged nine assists throughout his career, and he had a game where he had 11 assists, and I showed Andrew, I said, ‘look at this, let’s watch. Would you have passed or shot?’ He said, ‘I would have shot.’ Would you have passed or shot? Well, Deron was throwing balls to everybody.”

Before the tournament, the Cats ran an entire practice where Andrew didn’t take a single shot. That was the turning point, according to Calipari.
