The long time readers of BN know what we think of Andy Katz of ESPN. We have given him a lot of hell over time for his observations on college hoops (i.e. comparing Coach K’s accomplishments to those of Wooden). So it’s only fair that I give him his due for writing a really good report following last night’s debacle at Staples. Katz report on last night’s lapse includes some interesting observations from our coaching staff :
So, now that the Bruins have been "told how good they are," the staff is hoping reality will set in, since their next loss will be their last.
Howland was quick to point out that the Bruins haven't fallen too far, since they did win the league title just a week ago. Still, there needs to be a quick change of attitude, beginning in practice and with their preparation, according to the head coach.
"We are a team that has to play at its peak performance to have a chance to win against anybody, whether it's Sam Houston State or Kentucky," Howland said. "Anybody can beat us on a given day, and we can beat anybody. This just proves there is so much parity in college basketball."
