The new concept following along the lines of positionless basketball is reboundingless basketball.

I suppose that you want to say Keita.
Roberts has played 1 minute in the 4 Big East games.

Lots of threes lead to long rebounds which is where fast breaks happen. They are Trying to stop the break, think they've done that successfully

I’m sure this has been said before, but I hate the fact that he’s mic’d up in some TO’s. Why not just walk over and tell the opposing coach that his team doesn’t need to worry about being challenged on the boards after we take a shot?

I think FOX and/or the Big East forces it. They go to every coach in a timeout, at some point in the game.

Being outrebounded by 12 or 10 every game means even if the other team scores on half of those rebounds we give up 10 points per game. Bad outside shots and no inside game strategy also costs us 4 points per game. That's why this team with a better staff would be undefeated instead of still learning. Greg St. Jean is the most overrated assistant coach in college basketball. John Kresse he is not. We all love Mullin but he can't do it alone like other coaches and begs the question "who is Chris Mullin learning from". You will never have a complete college team playing NBA basketball because even Kentucky with five 5 star players can't do that. You need to coach up college players and not just let them run up and down shooting long balls.

Agree. It's kind of refreshing in an era of HD TV that pitchers cover their mouth with their gloves when they speak to catchers, lest the opposition employs lip readers to determine strategy.
