Happy coach. Deserves it.

Felt like besides the final three minutes of the first half, we had a solid game plan. Keller took credit for bad matchups, but overall this team was coached up to win. I love having a team that can execute.

Felt like LaTech decided their game plan was to press the first half and make us work the whole length of the court. I actually feel that even though we haven't seen much of that, it freed up our guys to play offense. We're going to win one on one battles over the long haul. Whatever the plan, it worked. Like Isaac mentioned, still gave up threes, but at the end, we forced them to take threes with our zone instead of penetrate. That won the game. Great win Jacks!

I thought that coach Keller made a brilliant move when he switched to the zone late in the game. I am encouraged!

Wow GZ, we know that is high praise indeed! Is Keller's off the court coaching having an effect on the Sawmill?

Going into a fortress such as LA Tech and fighting tooth and nail the entire game is more than you can ask as a coach. Then to execute your game plan while changing the opponent's game is definitely a sign of growth both from a player and coaching staff standpoint. Keller showed his staff can be adaptable while executing it on both sides. Feels really good to see these guys get a quality W.

I try to give credit where credit is due Nacluth. Keller has accepted responsibility for some of his shortcomings on occasions also. He is hopefully growing as a coach. He is starting to win me over. The bar was set pretty high when he took the job. I think that this was his biggest victory since he has been here. Louisiana Tech was number 19 in the Real Clear RPI ratings. Now if we can just refrain from having a let down. I think that we can beat LSU as well but don't overlook Rice at home. I think that we play better on the road than we do at home right now.
