Florida State. But I guess it wasn't totally unexpected.

I was really hoping for a NC vs SC match up. Oh well...

@bwgood77 I believe Sean's style is too Midwest for Arizona. Miller is a hard nosed, defensive minded, ball control coach who needs role players to succeed. Not a good fit for west coast ball. Much better fit for Kansas if/when Bill Self decides to take an NBA job.

The one thing I believe he fails at the most is developing and appreciating the role guys. The ones to do the dirty work, which includes defense. Who is their ball control (low turnover rate) point guard? Who is their defensive stopper? Who is their big ***ed thug to control the paint? They never have those guys.

Stevens at Butler had teams where two or three guys were getting offensive numbers and the rest were all role players. Jamie Dixon at Pitt, Howland at Pitt and UCLA. They succeeded when they each had a few of these "intangibles" guys. When they started recruiting better and got teams full of "stars" they failed in the tournament participation banner. Marshall had three last year but I may be a dope.
