A podcast from this morning's interview with Mike Lonergan is now available. (570 am Washington, DC). Some highlights...
The team's strengths aren't necessarily what they once were, but other players have really stepped up (in regard to missing Zeke and Creek)
Briante Weber is likely the best defensive player that ML has ever seen in college
Mentioned beating Wichita State, having difficulty scheduling Top 20 teams, and now having a real opportunity against VCU.
Jokingly refers to "Havoc" as "Hacking". Particularly at home where VCU has great crowds where refs may tend to overlook certain calls that they wouldn't on the road. (See, VCU does have their own refs.)
Talked about Kethan's 8 assist, 0 turnover game on Saturday, and claimed that Kethan ought to be the best passer on this team due to what defenses need to do to stop him when he has the ball.
Discussed Maryland's win last night, coaching with Gary, parity in the a10 (unbeated Dayton loses at Davidson who loses at Richmond), and really joked about the DC area's tendency to panic during snowfalls, having last coached at Vermont.

Is it snowing in DC? Other folks have called VCU's defense Hacking as well. a minus 0.1 for ML for non-originality.

BC, DC should be receiving about 10-15% of the amount of snow as Boston/New York, and yet the panic cries in this town are about 40-50% louder and whinier than what you'll find up north.
