In my regular TV channel surfing I had hoped to catch Isiah Moore and rasheem dunn in their respective games.  Neither are in the lineup, perhaps due to covid.  Might be able to see Roberts against iona tomorrow.

Dunn left the RMU program a week or so ago

That was a fake story, Cuonzo is still employed at least for now.

Missouri has let go of basketball head coach Cuonzo Martin. 

He had  a 7-8 current season and 73-64 overall record at Mizzou.

After watching Iona - Manhattan, I think its safe to say Pitino is doing a great job keeping Iona at top of MAAC

I think it would be 50/50 if we matched up on a neutral court.

He wasn't pleased after the game...has very high expectations.

Not gonna go over big with the "a win is a win" crowd. Second in nation in free throw attempts for a team without great talent translates to great coaching.

I watched much of last night’s Iona/ Manhattan game on TV.

it is interesting that with all of the talk of CMA’s uptempo “40 minutes of hell” it sure seems that Pitino’s team plays a more uptempo pressing style on defense..

Iona is a well coached team with limited talent.  If Iona played StJohn’s at this point in the season IMO Iona would likely win despite its more limited talent.  

Iona plays with a more controlled style and confidence of play on both offense and defense than StJohn’s.   Iona will play in the NCAAs again this season.  No surprise.

Say what you want about Slick Rick, but his attention to detail and pushing his teams to constantly improve is something;

Per Jaden Daly

Rick Pitino: “I’m not happy with the team, not pleased at all…but my expectations are very high. You look at the record and you see, what are we, 13-3? I look at how you’re playing. I’ll take 10-5 if we’re playing great, executing. I don’t think we’re playing great.”

Rick Pitino: “I’m 69, I could literally shoot blindfolded better than them. I go to camps, I could shoot seven out of ten closing my eyes. It’s not difficult, it really isn’t, so I’m bothered by it. I really am.”

Pitino has coached this way forever. When he arrived at Providence, he pressed and pushed the ball and took it hard to the basket. Part of the strategy was to get into opponent's 2nd five, where the talent level evened out. It took them all the way to the final 4.

When the 3 point shot was implemented, he went to the court, measured off 19'9", and drained shot after shot. Afterwards exclaimed, "This is too easy. We're going to shoot a ton of 3's".

Like Bonds, was an all time great without having to cheat. It's sad in a way.

In a game today Dayton was called for a total of only 6 fouls and Duquesne for a total of only 8 fouls.  Those are totals for the entire game.
