    So we find out players hoop dream is not zone defense. Glad we took Enfield.

    Rich, your article is spot on with regard to Mike Hopkins and Andy Enfield. Hopefully, Andy will continue to make the case that SC made the right choice. Thanks for the previews that you write. They are so thorough and insightful. Fight On!

    A couple of years ago, this board was convinced Hopkins and Jamie Dixon should have been hired instead of CAE. Dixon was a very good PG at TCU and went back to coach at his alma mater. You will never know if Dixon's contract negotiations were playing SC and other teams to get a better deal at TCU. Neither coach had done much lately. I've always been in the keep CAE camp.

    The Hopkins ship sailed as soon as Enfield was named. In going back over why we took Enfield over Hopkins, I have to believe one of the big reasons was Hopkins' association with Boeheim who had a reputation as a sleazeball. Nobody said that Hopkins was part of it but I'm sure Haden was sufficiently scared off.

    We were coming off of O Neil who had no offense at all, we would struggle to make 50, Enfield had dunk city. This is LA, the good players want a high level offense. They made the right choice. Dixon and Hopkins were both defense guys.

    Looking forward to tonight’s game. UW is awful. WSU sorta seems similar to us record wise - they play some bad teams close and have some decent wins. SC better be on their game if they want a win. Fight on.

    It is good that Nathan Anderson is back. NA is the only true PG.
    He will take while to get back into game shape.
    But the depth is needed

    What time is the game? I don’t see it televised locally. Might have to listen to it on the radio. :(
