  11. A (semi) Statistical Recap of Holy CrossRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 10, 2015 | Rock Chalk Talk

    Although Kansas allowed Holy Cross to score almost .9 points per possession, and at times they looked pretty ugly defensively, it's tough to entertain thoughts that the defense was horrible when they allowed the Crusaders to shoot just 35 percent on twos for the game. They also forced turnovers on 29 percent of Holy Cross's possessions and allowed them to rebound just 21 percent of their misses It's a testament to the power of the 3-pointer that Holy Cross shooting roughly 10 percent above its season average can have that much of an impact on not just how we view the defensive effort, but the final point total as well.

    Dec 8, 2015 | Rock Chalk Talk

    One of the most important traits of being a successful college basketball coach is the ability to develop and evolve the talent of the team's roster. While this same trait can be easily overlooked in the One-and-Done age of college basketball, Bill Self would not have 2 trips to the Final 4 or a National Championship without the ability to mature the skills of those such as Mario Chalmers, Russell Robinson, Sasha Kaun, Darnell Jackson, Travis Releford, Thomas Robinson, Kevin Young, Jeff Withey.
