BYU basketball returning to 'run-and-gun' style according to Noah Hartsock
PROVO -- BYU forward Noah Hartsock, who's getting set for his senior season, says the Cougars will return to a 'run-and-gun' system next season.
Last season, BYU relied heavily on the offensive production of national player of the year Jimmer Fredette, who led the nation in scoring and was the No. 10 overall pick of the Sacramento Kings in June's NBA draft.
But Hartsock told the Examiner-Enterprise, his hometown newspaper in Bartlesville, Okla., that the program will continue to perform at a high level.
“When I talked to coach (Dave) Rose, we talked a lot about how we’re getting back in the old system,” Hartsock told the Examiner-Enterprise. “We’re going to work back into a run-and-gun type of play and push the ball up the court.”
He also added that he's excited about the recent hiring of assistant Mark Pope.
Hartsock said that while "we'll start up from scratch," he added that "we're still a very talented team" with potential to make noise in the NCAA Tournament.
In football news, BYU offensive linemen Matt Reynolds and Braden Hansen were named to the Outland Trophy Preseason Watch List. Check out the entire list, and information about the prestigious award, here.
