And given that Flynn's shot missed by a tiny fraction of an inch we were very lucky. My guess is that this was the last time such an uncontested last second shot will ever happen under Coach Smith's tenure here.

I assume with all the bans on groups no formal practices are going on. Are the players doing individual work?

How is the team preparing for the next season?

USU has to find diamonds in the rough that no one else is willing to take a chance on. We've had good (even phenomenal) success with some, and of course some haven't panned out as hoped.
