Pretty amazing and cool. I was aboslutely obsessed with Coach David Arsenault's "Running to Extremes" coaching philosophy a few years ago. So much so that I called the school and asked the AD for game tapes Yeah, I'm a basketball nerd, for sure.
I've read a lot about Coach Arsenault's program in the past, though, and his brand of basketball would be amazing to watch every weekend. The small town of Grinnell, Iowa, certainly has something special out there in them cornfields Of the records I remember reading about, former Grinnell shooting ace Jeff Clement once drilled an NCAA record 19 three-pointers in a single game. He shot 52! Can you imagine if JJ would have played just one game with that type of mindset? Coach K: Now J, stand at half-court and wait for us to get the ball back. Shoot every single time you touch it. Half-court, 38 feet, five guys punching you in the face, whatever. But remember, defense doesn't get you records
JJ would have been so good that night, he might have had 80. I remember Dick Vitale commenting on this during a game a few years back when JJ was still in Duke Blue. He said something along the lines of Can you imagine if Redick just played one game in a Grinnell uniform? Wow, he'd hit 30 triples with ease if he could hoist 60 threes without his coach breaking a sweat. I'd certainly pay to see it. Now that would be a court of dreams.
