Recruiting may supersede all else, but recruiting alone doesn't get it done, or UK would be consistently matching the Lady Husky achievements. Clearly, without any top recruits, even mastering all the other aspects will only get you so far. I think to Darth's point, sometimes Cooley gets too much credit, but most of the time he doesn't get enough, which should be fine for us if that means we get to hang onto him longer. Repeatedly seeing the most improved player was at PC has to be more than a coincidence. With that in mind, and our recent tradition of having great guards seemingly coming out of nowhere (with the exception of Dunn) and get showcased night in and night out on Fox Sports1 or another national network, MAL should have his head examined! I also think Coach is identifying the right players and starting to win more battles each and every year on the recruiting front, and when he can get the Ben Bentils to stick around the way J Wright gets to hang on to a guy like Jalen Brunson, PC will be able to make deeper runs on a somewhat consistent basis.
