    Re: ISU Defeats Black Hills State, Greg McDermott Post Game Q&A

    We’re going to play a lot of guys this year. I really think that I am comfortable with nine or 10 right now.
    I originally expected that we would have a large rotation, but 9 or 10 is a lot of people to be getting in there, especially if Brackins gets 30-35 minutes per game. I wonder how much the line-ups will be dependant upon the size/speed of our opponents or if it will be a fairly consistent line-up from game to game.

    I would say he will play 8 guys a night but the 8 will vary from game to game.

    The added depth is going to make this a very entertaining year. We couldn't play a whole lot of pressure defense due to lack of depth or when we did it wasn't very effective because of the level of athleticism last year which made us a punching bag.

    Some people's opinions of Coach Mac's style of play is that it's boring or he gets out coached. A lot of that was due to the personnel but this year we'll see what Mac is capable doing with Big 12 depth and talent.

    Mac took a MoValley team to the NCAA's 3 times in a row. The lack of success in the past wasn't because he forgot how to coach.
