    ESPN says Coach Alford the best of the Tip-Off Marathon

    First Post Banner
    Nice compliment and some other good stuff in the article.

    Best coach:
    Alford tried to go small early at the Pit. That wasn’t working. So he added some size to his lineup after Davidson built up a double-digit lead against his New Mexico team. The Wildcats had a lot of open looks in the first half, so the Lobos smothered them in the second half. Alford’s in-game tweaks were crucial in UNM’s comeback.

    They left out a category - Best crowd (or best game atmosphere) - The Pit at New Mexico!

    I watched the Kansas/Sparty game, and while it was played at a very high level, I thought our game wasn't too far off. I don't have any doubt that if ours wasn't the best game, it was absolutely the second best.

    Biggest missed opportunity: Davidson had a chance to start the season with a road win over a Mountain West team that will likely make the NCAA tournament and will compete for its league’s title. The Wildcats led by 16 and squandered that advantage. Bob McKillop’s group might kick itself for this one on Selection Sunday.

    Best comeback: New Mexico was down by 16 points in the second half of its 86-81 victory over Davidson. But Snell fueled the Lobos' charge at the Pit in the second half. Coach Steve Alford made a series of defensive adjustments that limited Davidson’s offense in the second half.
