    For those who are familiar with the wrestling program. Our 3 primary coaches all likely weigh in the 160-180 range. We had a string of AAs in the mid to upper weight. We added a HWT coach and got a HWT AA. Our lightweights under-performed. A couple of years ago we added a lightweight coach and last year we had 3 AAs in the 1st 4 weight classes.

    In basketball, all of our coaches were guards (specifically PGs) or did not play the college game. Consequently or perhaps coincidentally, our PGs have been rewriting the record books. What we lack is a big man coach. Like wrestling, it may not be enough to apply generic basketball to a defined position. Sometimes in order to improve one needs to compete on a daily basis with someone who is better than you. Good big man coaches also help attract good big men. Next year we will be bringing a 6-11 center who seems to have some skills but will likely need some polish. TK, hopefully will be a great tutor in developing his post game but CS could use someone to develop his defensive, specifically shot altering skills. For discussion purposes only…am I the only one who thinks that this basketball team would benefit from a good big man coach, someone who has been there and done that.
    Tonight’s game will be televised. Keep an eye out for box outs.

    I don’t think it’s a huge deal honestly. Gabe had a great career with this coaching staff. Tim has been terrific so far as well. Obviously, both of those guys came in pretty polished but I think Justin Goldsborough’s development shows that this staff can develop big man on both ends of floor. JG is light years ahead of where he was when he arrived.
