Coach in his 6th year with program vs. coach in his 1st year, give it time
Coach with 3rd and 4th year players vs. players on campus 3 months. All that is before you even take into account that 2 best guards didn't play. Unless you have a Zion, the college game is all about guard play with kids who can shoot the 3 to draw out the crowd under the basket. If this front court accepts the coaching the Pirates will be set for the next couple of years there. Add a couple of guys that can shoot from the outside and I predict the best Pirate basketball that we have ever seen.
By the way, that team they played tonight won 27 games last year and really only lost one player. Dooley knows what he's doing, Support the team, make kids want to come here, be patient.
