You have no favorite boards.
I feel that next years team will be just flat out nasty defensively. With McConnell, Johnson and Hollis-Jefferson there won't be a better defensive backcourt in the country and that includes OSU with Craft. Then you mix in their size, speed, and athletic ability in the front court. Man is it going to be very difficult to score against Arizona. Not to mention a full 10 deep rotation (at least) that allows for fresh legs to wreak havoc all game long. The only question is if everyone buys into the attitude that is required to play great defense. I think they have it in them! Should be fun to watch.
Agreed! There's no excuse now, Arizona should really get after it defensively. Always loved that phrase since Miller first said it, "Nastiness is required!".
Time to nut up or shut up
I thought Craft was pretty darn good, but have no idea what the big deal is about him being the greatest defender of all time (or whatever they DukeVitaled him to be) .
Anyone think he was as good as he was hyped to be?
I know we missed that last assignment and we saw incredible percentages against us this year, but honestly I thought there was a disproportionate number of ridiculous circus shots that went in. People were throwing off balance, ill advised, hand in their face prayers up against is and it would fall time after time. I did not think our perimeter D was a as bad as it was made out to be at times. That would bode well for the future, I would think.

Dookie Hurley was better. i didn't see anything brilliant about him at all.
Lyons managed to score 23 points on him..... So, yea.
