John Calipari does a substitution dance

This is how you tell Trey Lyles to check in for Alex Poythress.

Kentucky is playing UT Arlington on Tuesday and predictably opened up a big lead in the first half. John Calipari went to his second unit midway through the first half, but three straight turnovers forced Cal to pull the plug on the second platoon after just 1:42. After the starters checked back in, Cal quickly decided to put freshman Trey Lyles -- the nominal small forward on platoon No. 2 -- in for Alex Poythress.

That's the context for the Vine above. Substitution dances! Kentucky is truly changing the game this year.
