As always, after watching us blow out yet another Top Ten team, one predicted to be a real test for our young team, I am impressed with our talented players, but even moreso by Geno and staff. Lots of players have natural basketball smarts and can shoot really well, but the kind of stifling defensive show we've been putting on, well, that's all about coaching. We took TAM so completely out of their offense that they looked pathetically ragged, and became a turnover machine from the opening tip. Show me a team that plays D with such relentless aggression, one that makes even its most vaunted opponents struggle to put up 50, and I'll show you a team that has a chance to go all the way. Yes, we're young (and next year we're going to be young and untouchable), and yes, with youth, we naturally worry about inconsistency, but we're showing NO inconsistency on the D side of the ball. We're blessed with several scorers, someone always steps up on that end. On D, everyone steps up in order to play for this coach. Hats off to him!
