Yeah we hung with them until it got out of hand, but it would have been nice to have more strength in our post-sanctions depth.

What’s sad to me is that Jank seemingly didn’t learn one thing while he was the coach in waiting. He had the opportunity to learn from LB....but nada.

Would be great to see more motion and screening in our half court offense and more ball movement including touch passes to create good looks. It was really fun watching LB's teams when they were hitting on all cylinders but let's not forget we did complain about how LB seemed to frown on guys taking threes. I don't like our bigs jacking up threes but have no problem with our guards taking them if they are wide open and within the offensive flow. Our guys do have to know when they are feeling it and when they are not and always remember to "share the ball" as LB preached.

I do think this team has improved defensively and Yor Anei has been a big part of that. We have plenty of guys with quick hands and they can be more aggressive knowing the big guy has their backs.

I really miss what having a hall of fame coach did for recruiting and both media and fan interest in the program. Not sure we will ever get that back because there just aren't that many LBs out there willing to work at SMU. We got lucky that nobody wanted him in that time frame but he was still wanting to coach.

thanks Charleston Pony. well written. I kept wanting to write something along those lines but didn't have the energy to type it. since Larry Brown and his recruited players, I felt the teams are just playing sandlot basketball.
they live or die by the percent of 3's. boring
