The Golden Hurricane love to play up-tempo from end to end

'Their strength is on the perimeter. All of their guards can play any position in the backcourt....

Kevin Johnson might be the most underrated player in the country. He's extremely athletic and a very quick jumper. That makes him play taller than he is....

Their lack of size should be a weakness, but it hasn't hurt them much. Offensive rebounding must be a major emphasis against them....

Antonio Reed made a lot of clutch shots for them last year. He's proved he can shoot the three, so teams will have to make him put it on the floor more this year....

They want the tempo to be fast, They'll run as much after made baskets as missed ones. You can't turn the ball over to them in the half-court, or they'll make you pay....

A team that can match up with their guards will frustrate them more than anything.'
