Men’s Basketball Preseason Notebook: Where We Stand

"I think the first week of practice has gone really well in terms of where we are, knowing our system and how far in we are versus a year ago," Dunleavy said. "I would say our freshmen know as much as our team knew last January. We're that far ahead, which is very positive, but we have a long way to go."

Specifically, Dunleavy sees the foundation of the team's discipline and retention of his teachings to be well ahead of schedule.

"We have virtually all of our sets in and I think our defensive coverages are sharper," Dunleavy said. "We have a bunch of guys who understand what they're supposed to be doing, so I have a dozen teachers out there."

Beyond the framework, pace of play is a key to success in the American Athletic Conference, a category Tulane led the league in last year. Workouts have been strenuous, but still, more work is to be done to play at the level Dunleavy desires.

"Conditioning-wise, we're much better now than we were at this time last year," he said. "We're still trying to take it up another notch-and-a-half."

I am hoping for that tangible feeling I now feel about year two of Fritz to come to pass in year two of Dunleavy.
