From the MIAC boards...

Whitman got a good player in Gutierrez, he tore his ACL last year so he was unable to play but he will fit into the high tempo, lot of possession basketball the Blues play.  He goes from one of the most losing programs in D3 to one of the most winning programs of D3 as of late, will be fun for him to compete for a national championship.

Vickers is a nice pickup for the Blues as well!

An embarrassment of riches, especially with Harrison and Wiggins coming back.

I'll be very interested to see how the current Pacific players adjust to new Coach Lunt's high pressure defense, up-tempo offense he's bringing over from UPS. The Loggers seemed to have adjusted pretty well in their first and only year in his new system. Of course, I took a shot at Pacific by drafting them in our fantasy league!

I'm not sure Coach Lunt is a one-trick pony. He very well may adjust his style to what he has. I don't remember him having just one way of doing things. I could be wrong.

This interview made it sound like he's planning on implementing the up-tempo style. He only implemented it just last season at UPS and he even noted they figured it out quickly.

I get that... but even you said he only implemented it last year. I know many coaches that rather see what they have for talent (granted, he knows them from the league) before making that decision.

Quotes like those I take kind of below face value. I realize how much can change. LOL

That said... learned a fascinating story from an east coast school on an added item to their interview process ... give us a coaching symposium for lack of a better term. One coach talked about how he would beat a high and mightly power in a particular sport. Broke it all down from scouting and the like... was the deciding factor. :)
