While I wish I could say otherwise, there are many facets of life where coach Pitino and I differ. Income, heritage, vocation and clothing style are all things we're never going to have in common. But for all our differences, I'm willing to bet you'd see a very similar reaction if you ever heard someone tell either of us that a lengthy list of top fives doesn't constitute proper blogging.
Here's a snippet from coach's latest post:
5 Areas that need work:
*Weak side defense
*Waiting on screens
5 Individual Evaluations:
Terrence Williams - Maturing rapidly, winning attitude and big time potential.
David Padgett - Big heart and key to our inside and outside attack.
Earl Clark - Major improvement from the first game. Needs continued growth defensively.
Will Scott - Keeps the defense extended to help our low post game.
Jerry Smith - Picking up his intensity. Shot will come.
*Depth at the 3 position.
*Surviving the schedule.
*Being ready early at the defensive end.
*Stopping dribble penetration.
*Making sure Vinny Tatum does not lose all his money in Las Vegas.
