Our Richard Kent caught up with Yale head coach and freshly minted Ivy Coach of the Year James Jones in preparation for the Bulldogs’ playoff with Harvard Saturday at the Palestra.
IHO: How is the preparation different when you play a team as much as you have played Harvard this year?
JJ: No difference, just a little more rest time this week with only one game.
IHO: What do you see as the key to Saturday’s game?
JJ: Rebounding and transition defense. We have to control the glass again and not allow them to score in transition.
IHO: What has the response been from alumni, students and fans this week?
JJ: Everyone is super-excited about the opportunity and the season the team has had thus far.
