Getting Some Love From USA Today

USA Today Runs A Feature on the Unbelievable Season the Rebels are Having

And it really has been an unbelievable season. I never thought I would be more proud and amazed at a Rebel team the way I was about last years overachieving Sweet 16 team.  But I have to say that this team is actually surpassing that.  Are biggest guy is 6’8″.  Two of the major components of our team barely played last year (Rugeau and Bailey) and when they did play they looked awkward and unconfident.  I thought we would never be able to stop teams with big men, and not only did we beat a BYU team with Trent Plaisted by 29, but we seem to be weaker against 3-point shooting teams.  This is because of defensive intensity is so high and we cut off the passing lanes so well.  As Ryan says to me every single time we talk, “Lon Kruger is not just the Mountain West Coach of the Year, he is the College Basketball Coach of the Year.” 

And someone is finally giving the Rebels some love.
