    Coach K

    Coach K

    Coach K has done a masterful job with this team! I think Dave Rose is an excellent coach, but for the second year in a row he was thoroughly out coached. Coach K had an unbelievably well thought out defensive strategy and the players responded. Never once did this team get rattled, they just stuck to their plan and delivered.

    I saw a full house tonight and he took the time to thank the fans and invite them back. Very smart! I also believe he wants the place filled up to use as a recruiting tool. Last year we ranked third or fourth in PAC attendance, players enjoy playing in front of a full house. Filling up the Huntsman center will make recruiting that much easier. We may not get to Arizonas level, but our crowd is coming back.

    He knows the x's ans o's as well as any coach we've had since Majerus. His teams seem to over achieve...think about our run in last years PAC tournament.

    Perhaps his biggest strength is how he develops his big men. Bachinsky looked great last night! Going into the game I thought the Zoobs had a huge advantage in the middle. Mika is a very good player. The combination of Olsen and Bachinsky not only held their own, but I think decisively won the battle. I thought that matchup was the key to victory last night. Also remember how Washburn's game improved under Coach K.

    Finally, he is an excellent recruiter. Three years ago we had 1-2 legit D1 players on the team. Last night I saw our bench thoroughly outperform BYU's bench. His current talent is good, but next years incoming commits are even better. We will be one of the top 3-4 teams in the league next year.

    Thank you Coach K for making Ute hoops fun again!
