Championships are won with stifling defense. We couldn't get stops against, Butler, Louisville or Michigan when it mattered. With added depth, we will be fresher at the end of games and should be able to keep the level of defensive intensity throughout the game. We have four people who can play minutes at the point with Smith and Frazier. With Walker and Smith, Yeguete and Young can get some needed minutes on the bench that they could not get last year in the tournament. I have to feel that having two additional bigs- one with the versatility of Smith- really increases our chances of advancing beyond the Elite 8.
