If anyone knows something about this guy, I’d love to hear it. All I know is this:
– He took over as Idaho State’s coach this season after winning 300+ games at the juco level.
– One of his assistants is former prep phenom Rodrick Rhodes.
– He inherited a team that finished last in the Big Sky and had a wretched defense.
– So far, the Bengals have gone on the road and taken Marquette and BYU to overtime, with an easy neutral-site win over Maine sandwiched in between.
– He relies on some sort of funky zone which lulled both Marquette and BYU into shooting more 3’s than normal.
Their next opponent is Washington State, a team that has shot the 3 very well so far. Which means we should find out on Tuesday whether ISU has benefited from a good bit of fortune or whether their D really is one of the most improved in the country.
