“I’m excited about the staff,” she said. “Matt was a basketball player … he is enthusiastic and energized. I like that he’s eager to learn.

“Old dogs can learn things from new dogs and new dogs can learn things from old dogs so I’m excited about him. And Mike has just always loved the game. We’ve always talked the game for years so I knew we thought the same way.”

After spending the summer working on basketball’s basics, the Bulldogs were busy putting together their offense and defense in the preseason.

“I think that because we did those fundamentals in the summer, they are catching and dribbling and shooting the ball better and that makes some of the things we do a little better,” Combest said. “They still have to learn the nuances of the game — about why you do this and when you do that — but that’s true for any ball player.

“It’s just like the other day and one of them said, ‘I didn’t know there was so much to it, about why you do this and why you did that.’ I said, ‘To be a good ball player you need to know the whole game.’”
