It didn't take long for Reggie Theus to realize what New Mexico State needed was a good house cleaning.
From the moment he stepped on campus last spring until the dog days of summer, Theus grabbed the nearest broom and started sweeping. Dust flew, players were sent packing and new recruits came in to call this small New Mexico community home.
By his own admission, it was crazy. But what Theus accomplished in only a few months is nothing short of amazing. Unless you buy a program outside the Pan American Center, you're not going to know who is who and why this starting five replaced last year's group on the floor.
