Rick Barnes and his staff will welcome players back on Monday, but it won’t be business as usual as far as offseason skill work goes. Coaches can’t work with players as they normally do in the summer for the first three weeks that they’re on campus, that’s an SEC rule. Players can start their offseason conditioning work with Strength and Conditioning coach Garrett Mendenwald though and there will be some strict guidelines in place.
The team will be broken up into small groups of three or four. Players will have their own personal sets of weights that will be used only by them and any equipment/machine that is used will be wiped down after each use. Players will be allowed to work in the gym on their own, simply getting up shots and doing their own skill work and each guy will be assigned his own set of balls to be used only by him.
