Re: Dan Hurley Coach's Show

Around 6 minutes, Dan mentions his affinity for man defense, but admits " that may change that a little this year." Nothing huge, but may help Berry work his way into the rotation a little bit more.

Re: Mini Plans

The mini plans are an awesome gateway to season tickets, that's how it happened for me at least. I'd say with another successful season, a solid number of those 5 game plans turn into season long commitments by 2018.

I wouldn't be stupid enough to rule out Kansas, but they are in hot pursuit of two five stars, Romeo Langford and Zion Williamson. They've only got one spot left to fill, and Langford is reportedly a "done deal" to the Jayhawks.

Hardest part with Juiston is how clamped down he keeps his recruiting process. Not tweeting heavily about it, no "Top 3" like a lot of other recruits usually have. Good for him keeping this close to his chest but it's gonna drive every fanbase following him up a wall.
