Coach Gamblin says this about the offense:
We hope to play with a great amount of pace. Our personnel should allow us to play fast and keep the floor spaced. Our goal is to get as many “paint touches” as possible and make the right decision from there.
Coach Gamblin says this about the defense:
My hope is that we can be multiple on the defensive end. With the new rules in place I think it forces teams to have to look at playing some zone. In our base Man to Man defense we must contain the basketball, protect the paint, contest shots, and finish possessions with all five guys boarding.
