    Valid point. That style is probably more conducive to the pro game where you're working with pro talent. Will be interesting to see if, after one year of that style with mixed results (14 losses), and with Martin gone, if LJ changes the plan to suit the talent on the roster. TBD.

    I don't have a problem with the philosophy. I have a problem with too much standing and dribbling when we didn't get anything early which led to too many forced shots late in the clock. Again, not sure if it was the coaching or players that have a problem creating an advantage off the dribble which seems to be needed to het the ball swinging in this style. Hopefully, an off season will help both.

    I want an offense like Loyola-Chicago's. Smartest basketball I've seen in a while. A joy to watch.

    They remind me a lot of the Butler championship game teams. They don’t have a Hayward/Mack NBA level talent, but they play smart offense and physical defense. Pass up the good shot for the great shot. A thing of beauty.

    4 guys that can shoot AND drive along with post that can score AND pass makes 4 out 1 in look pretty good.
