Alford talks about B&G Blowout
Coach Alford had a few things to say about his team's play in their intra-squad scrimmage this weekend, in an article that included this:
Despite limited numbers, the Hawkeyes kept the tempo brisk.
“The transition game is something we ran going into our Australian trip
(prior to the 2003-04 season), and we’ve made a few adjustments out of that to
run it into our halfcourt stuff,” Alford said. “Today, I think a little fatigue
set in, and that showed in our second-half shooting numbers, but it’s something
we hope to do more of.”
Sounds good. I think the roster is well-built for an up-tempo style, with quick, athletic guys like Haluska, Pierce, Henderson and Thomas taking passes in transition from Horner. Their depth won't hurt either. I guess we'll learn a little more on Wednesday.
