Coach Vance Walberg initially called his offense the Attack-Attack-Skip-Attack-Attack (AASAA) Offense. Well, it understandably didn’t come across very well. The story goes on to explain,
“A born promoter, Calipari also came up with the name Dribble-Drive Motion for the offense, ‘It’s just easier to understand,’ he says. ‘AASAA? Come on, what are you talking about?’ Owing to the offense’s continuous patterns, reads and backdoor cuts, he also branded it ‘Princeton on steroids.’ ”
