    Everything. This team is much better than last years. Much better coached.

    The Coach, the Newbies, Hilton Magic. Those are just some of the things that are going to be different.

    Re: I remember feeling this way a year ago against Drake...

    I'm so glad I don't have to watch Lucca play anymore. Standing around outside the three point line, worthless if he's not wide open, no defensive skills to speak of, and not very athletic.

    We finally have a point guard playing in an offense that is a proper fit for his abilities. DG playing McDermott's "offense" is like recruiting an option QB to play in a pro style offense.

    Everything that everyone's said.
    Also I think this year our players will be playing for the team and not themselves.

    I think we also have a coach that understands how to coach guards in any way..

    Well, off the top of my head...

    1. We now display help defense! I haven't seen this in years...
    2. Players drive to the basket, forcing a whistle.
    3. All players actually look at our coach now when they huddle during timeouts.
    4. Rebounding emphasis and effort.
    5. Passes have a purpose.
