I feel sick. *
Many current Deucers were around then, asking the tough questions.
From pck, a fellow lawyer: But ask him about the illini trapping defense, and get his comments on the trapping with big men, and why does he think other teams don't run a similar scheme.
Jay Bilas: I like the idea of trapping big men in the post, because few are skilled enough to really hurt you. You just have to resign yourself as a coach that you may give up an open shot, and perhaps an open three. The key question is where do you double from? Do you do it from a ballside guard spot, the closest man, or from post to post? You have to have a smart and well drilled unit to handle the traps well, and to rotate properly and still cover the glass. Basketball is an easy game in many respects, but can become quite complicated.
Detlef: Jay, what was it like working with Ken Howard during your cameo on "The White Shadow"?
Jay Bilas: The White Shadow was great. I was only 16 when I was on the show, and was a guy named Larsen. I was the best player on an all white team that a guy named Reese transferred to. All of the guys on the show seemed to be my age, but all were about 30, which seemed ancient at the time. I saw Ken Howard about two months ago, and he couldn't have been nicer. A great memory for me.
Those were the days!
