    Cool opportunity that will only raise his profile and the profile of our WBB program.

    It's so great that AJ has stuck with SDSU. Hopefully everyone has taken a moment to appreciate that. I always thought that if he got a team to the Sweet 16 he'd be employed elsewhere before the he even returned with the team to Brookings. You know he's had inquiries. It's especially refreshing this year to have the stability he provides in a see of turmoil around both men's and women's basketball nationwide.

    Was thinking about AJ today and how he must feel like a kid in a candy store, 1/2 way thru his court coaching duties with two USA National teams. Not only is it a great honor to be asked to be a court coach of 66 of the best players in the country, it's such a tremendous opportunity for him to be able to coach these very good athletes all together under one roof. It is something a coach must dream about doing, so glad AJ got his chance to fulfill that dream.It's a great thing for our WBB program also, to have our coach fulfilling such a prestigious position and being able to evaluate and teach such fine young athletes and learn from such a great opportunity.With the way we schedule , we might see some of these players taking on our Jackrabbits in the near future. I'm sure it's not his job to scout players, but rather to help train them, but, there's no law against taking mental notes on how certain players react to situations, or note their tendencies if they have any, jus thinking out loud.....
