Faster?

Collison is feeling the need for speed -

With Kevin Love having bolted for the NBA after one season, the Bruins lose their burly center and the keystone of last year’s offense. But senior point guard Darren Collison suggested the Bruins could be even more potent offensively without Love.

Last year, in Collison’s words, the Bruins dumped the ball inside and fed Love in the post and “watched him score 100 times.” Collison said it as if he had just as much fun watching paint dry and grass grow.

The offense at times required Collison and his teammates to wait for Love to lumber down the floor. It’ll be different now that Alfred Aboya is the projected starting center, according to Collison.

“[Aboya] can run the court probably better than Kevin, so it makes our offense a lot faster,” he said. “We can play a lot faster than we have.”

Howland is keeping it real by reminding everyone Collison and his team-mates still have to go inside -

“We still have to be able to score inside and manufacture points around the basket and get to the foul line,” Howland said.

But Collison is fired up about our depth -

“My freshman year, I think the reasons we went to the national championship was our starting five was good, but the depth brought us a long way,” he said. “And I think this year is going to be the same way, because of that depth.

“… Collectively, the talent is definitely there. We’re real skillful on the offensive end. Defense, that’s something we’ve been preaching since Day 1. That’s something we’ve done ever since coach Howland’s come here.”

Can't wait till Monday night!!!

Go Bruins!!!
