A New Year's Wish for Anthony Grant

That his players learn to play better man-to-man defense starting with a stance that requires them sitting their posteriors near the ground and not standing up and bending from the waist El Matador style.

That the new year sees him hiring either Josh Postorino or Keith Waleskowski as an assistant coach to help with guards seeing the floor; passing the ball to the interior; reversing the ball on offense to make the opponent's "D" work harder and improve dribbling skills to get to the rim and the foul line. KW could help improve rebounding and post defense.

That Anthony realizes he is no longer in the Association where highly paid Prima Donna's come and go while few coaches have the Onions to challenged their skill deficiencies or behavior. In Dayton, Ohio Anthony Grant in The Man and the team can be molded to his vision and wishes.

That Anthony finds a way to discover help for Josh Cunningham and Darrell Davis who are having fantastic seasons for the UD Flyers.

Happy 2018 Anthony Grant!

Do we really think that after 22 years coaching college basketball (1993 to 2015), that two years in the NBA (2015 to 2017) caused Anthony Grant to forget the previous 22 years?

Do we really think Anthony Solomon and Ricardo Greer do not understand how to teach seeing the floor, passing to the interior, etc.?

I have no idea whether AG will be successful at UD, but we are 13 games into his tenure. The play thus far has been very disappointing, but I am pretty confident the coaching staff understands basic college basketball coaching.

As a point of reference, AG's teams averaged #49 nationally in defense over his 9 years of college coaching whereas AM's team averaged #78 nationally in defense over his 6 years. I have no worries at all about Dayton's defense; AG will have Dayton as a consistent top 50 defense team in a couple years.
