re: Grinnell's Jack Taylor scores 138 (Posted on 11/20/12 at 9:10 pm to bddwolfpack)
quote: Sometimes referred to as the anti-Princeton offense, “The System” emphasizes a torrid pace of play where offensive possesions last about 5 seconds and typically end with a three-pointer.
The Grinnell defense is a chaotic, full-court trap that either forces an immediate turnover or degenerates into that 3-on-2, 2-on-1 drill you practice right after you forget how to do the three-man weave.
It’s so chaotic, Arseneault has to use platoons, substituting all five players every 45 seconds to keep legs fresh.
The closest comparison is Nolan Richardson’s 40 Minutes of Hell mixed with a cage full of badgers—in front of a tennis ball machine.
