Having the opportunity to coach Dayton guard Brian Roberts during his sophomore and junior year, I'm not surprised by his senior success and am very happy for him and the Flyers.
Watching him make those long jumpers at the top of the key and make plays off the on ball screen brings back memories. The country is now getting to see what I saw in practice and games when I was a Dayton assistant coach. "B Rob", as we called him at Dayton, has a skill package that separates him from other guards because he can not only score off the catch and dribble, but is a very underrated passer. When I watch Brian as a coach and not as a fan, I can see his confidence. And the look in his eyes confirms that he feels he can score against anyone and usually in bunches.
