Kansas coach Bill Self talks to reporters following the Jayhawks' 72-66 overtime victory over Colorado on Feb. 3, 2010.
Copy and paste the link:
He has got to be the most gracious coach known to man. If I'm a player, I'm praying that he is even renotely close to that gracious tomorrow at practice. CU may have given great effort and all, but our play was sad. Best lines was there is no congratulations for shooting 2-7 from the line.
Or zone offense was good .. our man offense was not close to good. We are not running any kind of set play offense in this game. We looked like a back yard pickup game at times. But good players find a way to win and thankfully we have good players. Free-Throw practice at 6am.
This offense is run by any of the guards to 'read' the bigman sealing his defender, and thus feed the post. The hi-low feed works the same. This is a VERY versatile offense, which can read the defense and react accordingly. The "set" plays are after timeouts, etc., and are called by Self. Like the one where Sherron gives the no-look pass to McM going backdoor to the bucket. Also the post screen set by a Twin that allowed Sherron to get all the way to the rim for a key OT layup was a set play called by Self. They ARE there throughout the game. Give the Hawks credit: we can be very hard to guard as it is, then Self starts calling special plays. (You saw the hand signals from the KU bench). The 3pt defense bothers me, but that was a challenge for the 08Champs also at times...Our problem was NOT aggressiveness vs. Colo.--how many times did we get to the line? If we go 28-for-38 (instead of 18for38) from the FT line, we win handily, no OT.
