Our players and coaches do their homework

Did you guys see Porter on SDSU’s final play before half?
He was watching SDSU’s coach as Watson brought it down, when the coach signaled the play to Watson, Porter turned to our bench and called out the counter defense. Their coach saw Porter do this and changed the play to something else, as soon as he changed it Porter saw the new sign and turned to signal a different counter defense. Their coach just looked frustrated. The play turned into a trap on Watson and eventually a terrible layup attempt on the fly by a bench player with no chance.
Our guys must spend hours and hours watching film.

I am interested to go back and watch the game again.

A SDSU fan posted somewhere (Facebook or Twitter) that Coach Smith was stealing signals from the opposing team the entire tournament.

The staff and players obviously spent plenty of time preparing for opponents.

“Stealing signals” is only a thing in baseball idiots. In other sports it’s called scouting. If only both teams could do it, hmmm....
That’s why Stew had the two sets of cards.

We do this a lot. I was watching a game on TV one night and during a TO we had one of our Assiant coaches watching the other teams huddle and relaying info back to ours. This staff is a well prepared group!

In our game against Nevada, both teams were huddled up and there was an assistant coach from each team watching the other team intently. It this case I think they are watching the substitutions. But I thought it was pretty funny both of these guys were kind of staring at each other trying to get info while also block the others view.

Actually just teams do this. I didn't really notice they did this until the Air Force game. Hard not to notice the two guys in their Air Force uniforms staring at the Aggie huddle taking notes.

At all of our home games, I saw the opposing conference point guards consistently looking at our bench to see what was being called or changing defenses based on what our on-court call was. All teams do this.

We call very few offensive sets. Smith said we only have two or three.

Hipster, you're a strong detail man to sort that out... Thank you and I want to see the game replay so I pay more attention to the details on the court. WELL DONE my man. WELL DONE.

Interesting thread. We only have 2-3 sets but probably many variations that players run based on what defense is giving. On the other hand at the end of the SDSU-Nevada game, without any timeouts Nevada looked completely lost even with 4 seniors on court. No sets, just 1-1 with bad shot. Contrast to ore team who still runs great plays at the end, even with a walk - on sophomore point guard.
