Dayton head coach Brian Gregory deserves respect. He was the assistant coach on Michigan State’s NCAA championship team. He said a few interesting things. One is quoted in Will Dempster’s column in today’s paper. The second was said in the press conference and quoted in the Washington Times story by John Siegel.
“I was with an NBA scout before the game, a buddy of mine. He said this is the second-most athletic team in the country, right behind Memphis. I have seen some very good teams. They are as good as anybody around. They have a good chemistry. You have to have senior leadership. You have to have seniors to win. … They have all the ingredients.”
