Bulls Wrap Up Conference Media Day

 

ORLANDO, OCT. 27, 2015 – Orlando Antigua, Jaleel Cousins, Nehemias Morillo, Chris Perry and Roddy Peters took part in the 2015 American Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Media Day Tuesday in Orlando.

The five spent the morning on the floor of the Amway Center, home of the Orlando Magic and to this season’s American Athletic Conference Championship, held March 10-13. Along with visiting with local and conference media members, the Bulls did interviews with ESPN, CBS Sports Network, the American Digital Network and the American Sports Network.

During Coach Antigua’s on-air segment with ESPN’s Tim Welsh, the second-year head coach spoke about the progress his program is making.

“We were able to establish a work capacity last year in how we wanted to play, how we wanted to work and how we want to approach the process each day,” said Antigua. “That made for a very good spring and summer and now we get to build off that foundation. Now we get to improve the skill set and the decision making and become better basketball players.”

As a season ticket holder for a number of years, I really like the product that COA puts on the court.   Even is we don't currently have the team that takes us deeply into a tournament, conference or otherwise, we have a team that is exciting to watch and never quits.  That's already an improvement.

I'm looking forward to seeing what is going to happen as we bring in players that match the style of play that coach envisions.

Exactly, and you can already see the young talent just pouring in.

I wouldn't say it's pouring in just yet, we've had some academic issues bringing some into the fold. I do like seeing the style of play and see that Antigua is attempting to build something. I like his assistants, so I think its a matter of time before everything clicks in terms of recruiting, style-of-play, and fermenting some experience with COA's system. I'm thinking it's more reasonable to see some degree of "clicking" next season, rather than this one.

I understand what you're saying, I don't expect that much coming out of this season, but just the raw talent that you can see in McMurray the freshman, Guerrero, and Holston as well as other upperclassmen, and transfers from penn state and gonzaga, I see us being a tournament team in a year or two at most.
