Re: Indiana Basketball 2011-2012 Part II
Just picking nits, I have to question Kravitz's assertion that Knight was outcoached in the 1986 NCAA first round game against Cleveland State.
That '86 team, largely devoid of athleticism, was simply not equipped to handle the relentless press/up-and -down game of the Cleveland State Vikings. Viola: an "upset" in seed only. If anything, that '86 squad overachieved to finish second in the Big Ten that season.
Smart and Garrett arrived next year and the rest is history.
Other than that, the article is spot-on to me. What sometimes appears to be "poor" coaching is just as likely to be the result of poor player/team execution.
