SM: I do believe we'll be rock solid in being able to execute that defense. A lot has been made of hand checking, officials calling that tighter. Maybe on a block charge it favors the offense over the defense. The foundation of our man-to-man is very help-oriented so the new rules [shouldn't hurt us.] It's not just one-on-one basketball where they are on an island all by themselves. We try to defend more as a group by providing a lot of help.
