Was anyone conern that Hoiberg told his players the other night---no plays just run and gun. i could coach that way too.
It was an exhibition. His goal was to get up and down and create tempo. That won't be how the play all year. He has sets and will use them but for this game he didn't need to show future opponents anything.
I checked his 9 other posts. If he had posted anything remotely positive about anything Cyclone I wouldn't have. However, with his post history, my money is on Troll. So I will go ahead and stand by my insult on use of the proper forum.
OP, It wasn't just run and gun. Plus, it was only the first game... and it was an exhibition. Do you really think there would be actual plays and a lot of coaching and drawing up plays in a game that we should win easily? Come on.
Also seeing as a big point of Hoiberg's strategy is trying to enforce proper spacing on the floor (Which has been horrible the last 3 years). There was a point to it other than just don't run any set plays. If you want to run and gun, and play the style of basketball that Hoiberg wants to you should be able to beat an exhibition opponent without running a set play. Spacing in this syle of ball will be just as important as executing set plays.
