rye – We’d never in a million years have gotten Auriemma to come here. He’s the greatest women’s basketball coach of all time, gets essentially any prospect he wants, is a favorite for the title almost every year, and is a god at UConn. Why would he ever leave?
There are a lot of different factors that go into the way the college game is played now, and I believe I saw a recent article that scoring efficiency is actually on an upward trend in college basketball, it’s the speed of the game that is trending down (don’t have time to track it down at the moment though). I will say this though, if you want to make an argument about lack of fundamentals, Okafor’s a terrible example. Sure, he’s not a good free throw shooter. Outside of that though, he’s the most polished and skilled offensive big man in the college game in decades.
