Ok, folks, I'm on a roll. :hihi: I'll also just say, let's give some credit for last night's win to Brady. The team played great, but let's not forget Brady's in-game/half-time adjustments that made a difference: 1. Switching taller Mitchell to cover Soliver. 2. Going zone for a key stretch to separate the score. Tightening up on d. Brady on Iona's points in the paint: "The points in the paint, and I addressed it at halftime, wasn't primarily by their post players. We just gave up some baskets in transition and let them get in the paint for easy scores. Our defense was not as alert or aware as it should have been." 3. Substituting Lazare, Thomas and Rolle in good pattern. Got Thomas the confidence he'll need further down the line. Gave Lazare a chance to really make an impact. Gave Rolle meaningful minutes. 4. Going to Big Baby, despite the 1 of 8 first half shooting: Glen Davis on getting the ball down low in the second half: "It was coach's idea. He wanted to start off down low to get an inside presence. They were beating us in the paint to start off. Coach just called the right play at the right time and we stuck with it." 5. Actually getting some offense out of the Tigers, who shoot above 50%. Jeff Ruland on slowing down the offense in the second half: "They (LSU) are so long, it's hard to run when you don't rebound and make stops. They executed great in the second half and eventually their height and speed wore us down. We're not going to compete against that caliber of guys playing with one or two players that do not have great games." So.... Maybe the guy can coach in big games? :hihi: I'll also say, when the camera panned to CJB, he wasn't always scowling or screaming. He also whipped out the nice steel blue shirt. Perhaps he's interviewing for a job? :hihi: :geauxtige :bball: :champs: LSU IS A BASKETBALL SCHOOL.
