    It's the day of the Steak Fry. Hope to hear some updates on all the new players tonight.

    Recap:

    Loves his staff. Xavier brand & program allowed him to keep Mario, Jennings, Fluker etc.

    Team is working harder this offseason than he has seen in the 10 years he has been here.

    Was at Big East meeting sin FL and Cintas was voted toughest place to play by coaches.

    Scruggs: expects him to make a huge jump this year. Light turned on for him midway last season.

    Tyrique: expects him to one of the best post players in league. Need him to play 5-6 minutes at time w/out being winded. Played at 260 lat season and Steele wants him at 230 and he is down to 243 already. Want him to run, dunk, rebound and defend.

    Q: Healthy finally. They re-worked his jumper and you saw the improvement at end of season. Shot continues to improve. Must finish around rim better and use his left hand when he goes left, uses right too much. Wants Q to be more vocal on court, increase leadership.

    Harden: Needs to get stronger. Natural scorer who can shoot. Practice will determine his PT.

    Naji: had great freshman year. Need him to slow down a bit in the lane, gets out of control at times. Want him to be ready to catch and shoot. Should be one of the best defenders in the league.

    Incoming guys; all players will be on campus by this Sunday

    Walter: cannot comment on his situation right now
    Kennedy: Winner, long wing-span. Will compete for PT.
    Castlin: similar to Malcom Bernard, does dirty work, little of everything
    Hankins: Needs to put some weight on but will split with Tyrique. Can step out and shoot, game similar to Karem. Didn't have same type of resources at Ferris State so they want him to hit weight room.
    Welage: Stretch 4, shot 43 % from three last year. Will help fill perimeter void left by JP and Kaiser.

    Still looking to possibly add another player or 2 but must be right fit and will not fill just to fill.

    Will play man to man 90% of time but want to get more offense from their defense. Expects team to be quicker and disrupt the ball more. Will press at times but depends on lineups.

    Talked about the field at Maui, probably toughest field ever. Team will be tested early. They have a lot of new faces to mesh with current team, guys will need to buy into their system and the way they do things. Likes the fact that X finally plays Wisconsin at home. Badgers should be much better this season.

    That is all I can recall!
