My runs were pretty good. I'm a lot faster than I was last season, and I'm still building up more speed. I think this year is going to be my best year.
I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to lead this program.
We have more players available to us, and we're playing a more up-tempo style. Even though we tried to play up-tempo at their place, we didn't quite have the rotation we do now, and we're trying to get more possessions per game and shuttle guys in and out a little more to keep guys fresh.
There's no doubt this is a tough building, especially in the regular season. Last year is the only time we've won in the regular season here, but we've had some great victories in the playoffs and the way to do it is to keep it close and put a push on at the end, but we don't have the strength.
I got together Grandma's recipes and a very nice Trinidadian woman to cook the food, and we opened up.
We pushed the take-out section of the restaurant to get a feel for what people in the community wanted. The dining room is open now, and people are coming in to stay and eat.
In many ways it was a typical California-Indiana game, and there have been a lot of games like this where we get within four or five and then put a push on in the last two minutes. We just didn't have enough juice to finish it off.
