1. Defensive improvement. A solid defensive starter at the 2/3 and a big man.
2. Depth. Team had no depth and had bench players playing starter level minutes and guys that shouldn't be playing, playing solid bench minutes.
3. A veteran assistant to help Mo out. They lost out on Lynam last season when he decided not come along. I didn't think it would be that big of a loss at first, but by mid-season it was clear how big of a difference he could have made.
