    Re: Lucious a new man, Cyclones rout Texas

    Thanks for the writeup, Chris. 70 points in every game is great, and even more so is that they have 80+ in all the wins except one (UMKC on the road). They just score and score.

    Hoiberg is showing a very unique coaching style. Early in the season, he seems to let his players do "their thing" until they get it out of their system and settle into a role for "the team." Lucious is the best illustration.

    I was just thinking this same thing - basically changing lineups for each game, playing with the pieces, but not abandoning it when it ain't going perfectly. Gives the guys a chance to succeed or fail, but never do they doubt that he trusts them. All of the non-con games were a learning experience for these guys and the coaches and then Fred takes his notes, builds a gameplan for each game and just DESTROYS the opposition. Love it.

    Players play hard for a coach who trusts them. Coach trusts players who are teachable and play hard all the time. We appear to have the makings of both!!!

    Re: Lucious a new man, Cyclones rout Texas

    I don't know about anyone else, but I feel like we haven't seen the best of Lucious yet. There's lots of season left to be played; only more room for him to grow.

    Wait...I thought Fred didn't know anything about coaching?

    Re: Lucious a new man, Cyclones rout Texas

    No kidding, never got those guys who where on Fred after the KU game. I found even MORE respect for Fred's coaching ability because of one moment that was easy to miss. Right before half Texas scored with about 39 seconds left. Ejim was grabbing the ball to rush in the inbounds pass. Fred yelled at him to wait. The whole time Fred was watching the official do the 5 count. At 4 he signaled Ejim to inbounds. We got the last shot as a result. It didn't go in, but that is besides the point. What an amazing awareness of the situation, and how to use it to your advantage!

    Got to use a friend's seats and so was sitting down behind the bench yesterday. I spent most of the game watching how Fred was reacting and managing the game and the players. Fred was cool and smooth in his approach. Most of his commands to players was one word, a nod, or a look. The players just seemed to know what it was he wanted. Another sign to me of a good coach. But, the other side of Fred's coolness is that he is in every play. You can see it in the subtle reactions he has to everything going on. If I can see that from spending 2 hours sitting behind him, I am sure that competitiveness rubs off on the players!

    I walked out of Hilton yesterday happy about the win, but even happier that Fred is our coach!

    Reminds me a lot of Chris Allen's situation last year.

    Re: Lucious a new man, Cyclones rout Texas

    We are a much better team with Lucious on the court. No one else on the team gets the respectful spacing from the defense thathe does with the ball in his hands. You can tell by the tempo when he is on or off the court.

    Re: Lucious a new man, Cyclones rout Texas

    Gotta love what Fred is doing with Korie, and even though Korie is playing a lot more solid 1, he still got a little "flair" in yesterday on a couple of passes and a one handed drive to the bucket. That's what I like about Fred in that he gets his players to be solid in their roles but still allows them to have a little flair and fun out there, and of course the most fun is winning. Great article, Chris, but you might want to change the Aaron Rogers reference to Colin Kaepernick, at least for this day. Go 49ers.
