What does a well-coached team look like? Knows where to be on defense. Takes care of the basketball. Runs the offense correctly. Players know their role. Good shot selection. Knows what they are supposed to do in situations (facing the press, running inbounds plays, defending inbounds plays, end of half plays, etc). Plays hard and hustles. In short, they know what they are supposed to be doing, and they do it most of the time. This does not mean they block every shot, never foul, make every shot, get every rebound, and never turn the ball over. Sometimes the other guy gets is just as well-coached, and/or is quicker, taller, jumps higher, or just beats you to where you are going. UNI is well-coached imho, but they would have a tall order to beat Kansas or Baylor. Talent matters, and getting talent is part of a coach's responsibility too. But a well-coached team plays above their natural talent level, not below it. Has Iowa State looked well-coached under Steve Prohm? 150 pages of BS about Fred, FAMU, a 16 beating a 1, the Big12 tourney win, Fred's guys, transfers, discipline issues, lineups, UAB, McDermott, and all the rest.... it's all Red Herrings. Distractions. Has Iowa State looked well-coached under Steve Prohm?
