Like Scrappy's optimism.. No mention of defense?? My Two Cents.. And to be extremely precise..I am a UConn Men's BB fan of over 55 yrs.. Pre-Calhoun days.. Have enjoyed the Ride.. I think Yarders are objective enough for this topic..Here goes..I will be very interested to observe/watch DH's end- of- game coaching skills now that he has the talent on the floor/bench that he has been looking for. Can he go toe-to-toe with Izzo/Coach K/Cal/Jay W/NBE coaches and get the win in crunch time?? I know its about player execution/performance.. Coaching helps.. JC was out-coached early in his UConn career by his BE coaching opponents.. He evolved into a great in-game coach and a HOFer.. DH checks many of the boxes already..Will be curious to see if he can match the talent he will have on the floor by outcoaching his BE coaches.. Believe its his last primary hurdle to NCs.. Like his chances. .Let the Bustin' begin !!.
Perimeter defense, 3 point shooting, team chemistry ... those are the main questions for me ... we'll see but I'm very optimistic, although not national championship optimistic, especially in a shortened season -- this team will need time together.
