Holtmann doesn’t expect his team to become the most efficient team in the country overnight, but sitting near the bottom isn’t a good sign for things to come.

Chris Holtmann said : “Our attention to detail has to get better,” “That was probably some of why I reacted the way I did. We had a couple defensive errors in scouting that can’t happen as we move forward and we have to do a better job as coaches making sure they understand we can’t have those errors after we’ve covered it day after day. Either we’re not making it clear enough or I’ve got to look to play somebody else” External link

Chris Holtmann said : “Pretty much every game moving forward he’s going to go against size equal to his,” “So he’s got to continue to grow in his physicality, his conditioning has to continue to improve so that he can play harder and longer because that impacts him on both ends. I think last year he recognized it, whereas the season wore on he wasn’t quite in as good as shape as he needed it and he just kind of wore down a little bit because of the physicality that you see in the Big Ten. He understands that” External link

Chris Holtmann said : “The one thing about Luther that helps him right now is he’s our most conditioned player and that’s typically atypical of a freshman,” “One of the things with freshman is your trying to get them to play harder than they’ve ever played in their entire life because of the level. Where here you have a freshman that’s pretty much led every sprint in conditioning from day one and has shown a consistency from conditioning on in practice so it allows him to just play at the pace that you need him to play. Whereas most freshman you have to challenge them (to do that)” External link
