Line of the day comes from Dan Hanner of Yet Another Basketball Blog.
He lauds new Iowa coach Fran McCaffery for revving the Hawkeyes’ offense – 3-pointers in transition! – and takes aim at the rest of the conference teams who remain slow.
Aside #1: The Big Ten is now down to four coaches who hate college basketball. (I.e. prefer brutally slow-paced games.) That list includes Bo Ryan, Ed DeChellis, Bill Carmody, and John Beliein. Bo Ryan isn’t going anywhere, and I can’t blame Penn St. for trying to shorten the game. But the Big Ten only needs one Princeton-style offense.
Hanner then lauds JaJuan Johnson. Great minds, Dan. Great minds.
