I agree that the Saints had a lot of talent on that team. However, their talent was not just physical but also mental. They played smart and unselfish basketball and were fundamentaly sound.

Not sure if Hewitt has proven that he is a GREAT coach yet. In college the coach is in essence the coach/general manager. He needs to not only coach the players but to get good players into the program as well. Until Hewitt wins with players that he has recruited then I would have to say the jury is still out on him.

If you are refering to him as a GREAT coach in regard to coming into a situation and making the whole greater than the sum of its parts then I have to agree with you. But no matter how great he is at coaching, he would not win with the current Loyola roster. Yes he would win more than Hicks but he would not win enough to be considered successful.

The bottom line is to be considered a GREAT college coach, you must not only get the most out of your players but you must also get quality players.
