1. This group plays like a real team. They showed alot of teamwork and seemed to support one another. JJ used the bench very efficiently.
2. Much better spacing on offense. Great ball movement against the zone. No standing around on O. Didn't have to play against the shot clock.
3. Rebounding is a concern.
4. Impressed with Brown, Eddie, and of course Green.
5. The Cassell had a much different and positive vibe.
6. During the National Anthem, the entire team and coaching staff stood together with their hands on their hearts (in previous years, Seth would stand away from the team with his hands behind his back). This might seem insignificant to some, but to me it displays that JJ is doing things the right way.
I expected this team to be more enjoyable to watch, but I was very encouraged by how well coached they looked for an opening game. I follow basketball very closely and in my opinion, the coaching looked far superior to that of the past.
