I was looking at your roster you you start or is there in the starting five you have kind of relatively young team is selling your deep here with just seniors and you guys made this right you got some youth. No absolutely I mean we wish we played a lot of different bike course. Graduate transferred from northern Illinois and he's coming. In distant you know had a tremendous year especially at the end of the year or snaps a game winner the semi final against South Dakota the loudest in the spot we learned yesterday. Armed but yeah obviously. It all starts with our big Fella might dominant side and you only as a sophomore and he's just. Extremely hard matchup for a lot of guys have been with the ability to go out the primers shoot the basketball and also.

You have a day it's it's it's exciting to see all the used out there that sure. He retired with Eric Anderson assistant coach South Dakota State Jack rabbits are heading. The NCAA tournament they want the summit league championship last night. And knocking off Oman in coach I don't want to get into much hot water here but I do ask this question now I'm doing some research on code okay. And I know that you spent a couple years at North Dakota State. And you were part of the North Dakota State you know into the NCAA tournament so a two par four yeah. His or her record her. I don't got to get out and try cause we love these interviews didn't really do so I got as it is go one from North Dakota State to South Dakota State like gold from the Yankees to the Red Sox and then the second part of the question would be what's the better Dakota north or south. Yeah. And (%expletive) Communists popped. Your job as best I can pretty darn good it is it is a little bit like that that's for sure Brett I've obviously are much are all went great people in the Dakota. And that's just the midwest unbelievable and and down. It has political envelope argument you know I've had a previous relationship with coach out murder like coach we worked there or not viewers that I state now to Chia hair we've just always talked about working together Jenin when he got the opportunity. To become the coach here on it was a no brainer you know I believe in him in a little bit and certainly certainly we are finishing up like this year. This is not the email response that I got from your SAD Andrew he didn't say you were offense in our coach he said you're willing to go out there with the hot cakes and I'm not and you aren't you taken north or South Dakota period. I told you gotta stay with stretching your memory to have my right. Yeah that's true that's true you know 'cause I'm looking at at your guys season. Yeah had a rough patch there Kennedy ended December and in January where you weren't getting a lot of w.s. Are what create rough after. A what are you guys able to do that kind of corral the kids back in and starts and winning ways and did in that conference tournament have that run. Yeah you know obviously start the season one and six and then restarted conference so I don't think wanna gain in January. And dictate to give our kids. You know our kids deserve a chronic credit to believe and and you know at least passed on believing in the system and and we just you know try to look at where we're gonna get better each and every day. I'm trying not to look too far ahead you never get to I never get too low which is how are we gonna get better tomorrow. And down you know the kids the kids deserve a comic credit for sticking with the process and police and you know wanting you know we did this you know we Mike Mike. There are big kid inside reserves in the second leading scorer in the in the in the country. You know we we put them on the trigger a little bit more in the big guys that are guarding them you know weren't there to protect the rim and so we just didn't just sit him in the block we started to move him around a little bit nick got mother got some confidence you know we get to the basket without architecture and they're able finishing. In dumb and then it just kind of evolved from there and in any restarted the put and have a little more emphasis will regard real well but strike if you're in and just started. On little more emphasis on that rebound look for better and end up things can't get a quick. Most South Dakota State they punched their ticket to the NCAA tournaments on the Jack rabbits they won the summer league championship last night beating Oman we get Eric Anderson their assistant coach. Online what doesn't and clearly is your mentioning Michael's product you guys turn things around a little bit there at the end of the season.

Predicting that wind and marched it seems that when their captain's championships. Have the best locker room in our guys believe in each other. They're playing with an extreme amount of confidence.

Tickets can go to Jack rabbit maybe. I loved and I love it goes what do you do in your off time in South Dakota I've never been to Celtic code I don't know how many listeners out there for us have been to South Dakota what what is there to do where Europe could.
