    6. Look no further than UTA. They have many of these same attributes yet they have the chemistry of the old grade school volcano project. Poof...all up in smoke.

    All the elements must be cohesive first.

    BTW: why has Tx State played one more conference game than everyone else? Weird

    ETA: well, so does app, USA and coastal, but still don't understand why the rest of us have only played 7

    There's a rotation where one school only plays one conference game a specific week. We didn't have a Thursday Home game the week of the ulm game. Pretty sure we were ulms only game that week as well. Guess it has to do with travel partners

    I hate putting rebounding (and depth) so far down the line... since this team hustle's and works the boards so well... but every category is almost worthy of a first place vote.

    I selected defense.
    But, I consider rebounding a part of defense.
    Also, every charge that Jonathan Stove takes is a part of defense.
    It limits the opponents offensive opportunities.

    Texas State, UTA, Coastal and App have all played one more conference game than we have. That's because they haven't had either of their rivalry games yet.

    It's hard to pinpoint just one. They do everything very well and going down the list, each one has won a game by itself. At the same time, a combination of 2 or 3 have won games. Then there's games where they were all contributing reasons. Just like you never know which player is gonna step up. You never know which one of these is gonna play a part. Which is why this team is special.

    I selected defense also.

    But, I consider rebounding part of the offense.

    At the very least it increases offensive opportunities.

    Incidentally, why is offense not in the poll?

    Mike, this is not on your list, but I think them knowing their roles on offense, and being able to play multiple roles is a unique part of this team. Outside of Stroman, everyone else is really flexible. I think that adds to our depth and different group combinations we can play. Bryce is stuck with the 5 by default, but is one of the best passers on the team. Gant can play inside or out. Bartley, 2, 3, or 4. (as with Marquetti). We are seeing Russell play more 1. Stove gives a good body inside although its not his natural position.

    I guess this just all comes down to unselfishness and athleticism. So many positives to track on this team. It is fun to try and figure it out, that's for sure.

    The way the team shares the ball is basically offense. Regarding having multiple guys being able to contribute in different ways with everyone knowing their role is basically depth. I listed composure No. 1 due to many teams in the past folding after getting hit with counterpunch. Does not happen to this group. I do understand why chemistry is rated No. 1 though by many of you. Here is an example. On the coach's show last night, Malik Marquetti was the player guest. Jay was playing a fill in the blank game with him. Interesting response given to the following question; Person I always listen to is BLANK. Malik did not hesitate when answering. I will let you guys figure out what the answer was. However, people attending the show clapped immediately and it gave evidence they have bought into the team concept.
