Gillispie should stick to his plan

Why Gillispie is doing it right: I watched Kentucky get taken apart by Gardner-Webb from tap to buzzer on Tuesday night. Frankly, it was painful to watch, but it was familiar. Kentucky coach Billy Gillispie has taken over the Wildcat program, and he has a choice to make. He can stick with his organized plan and his style, or he can make knee-jerk changes in his philosophy and principles and make adjustments to some of his players just to squeak out an extra win here and there.

It is really tempting to make the adjustments at the expense of the plan, but he should stick with his plan and implement his system. It may hurt a bit now, but the payoff will come later.
