    On a positive note...

    Talked to a friend today who has a source at the Iowa Energy. An assistant coach who does a little scouting. He saw Gilstrap recently and said he is the real deal. Said he is a VERY good player and Iowa State got a good one.

    Watched Brackins and Gilstrap go one on one with a two dribble limit...Very entertaining.

    But we know it takes at least two years for a player to learn all of McD's plays.

    He was also impressed with the freshman PG. I assume he meant Colvin. Stopped just short of comparing him to Tinsley. A bit premature but nice to hear.

    Actually that drill can be really intense, especially if you take away all dribbles. We used to do all kinds of drills like these when I was coaching. My favorite was 3 vs. 2 on each side of the court. Players had teammates past half court but couldn't cross the line. Hard to explain online but it helped reinforce our full court 1-2-1-1 press.

    We did the two dribble limit for a majority of our offensive drills. Makes kids be explosive with the dribble and not screw around.

    Yeah we do 4 on 4 full court with a 1 dribble limit almost daily...forces them to see the floor and think what they're going to do before they get the ball, and also to go somewhere with their 1 dribble...



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Saw a Cap City League game this summer with Gilstrap and Barnes guarding each other. Neither one could stop the other and they both probably had around 40. That was fun to watch!

    Re: On a positive note...

    I just hope that Gilstrap can live up to even half the hype he's getting. Honestly, if he's good for about 10-15 points a game, and also a solid rebounder and defender, then that's going to be enough of a contributrion to help us win a lot of games.
