The UH men’s basketball team experienced something today that it hasn’t truly had since the preseason: a completely healthy roster.
With senior forward Bill Amis involved in full practice for the first time since the first four games of the season, and freshman point guard Bobby Miles back from getting wisdom teeth pulled this week, UH was at its full complement of 13 players.
Makes for an interesting WAC home opener tomorrow as UH (9-5, 0-2) against Idaho (7-6, 1-1).
The White (first) team failed to win a drill called “two stops, two scores” in several attempts near the end of Tuesday’s practice. In it, the White squad is behind by four points with 2 minutes on the clock and needs two stops and two scores to send the game into overtime or win it outright.
It was a frustrating finish to that practice, but midway through today’s session, coach Gib Arnold felt confident enough to try it again.
The White squad executed much better in scenario’s pressure situations and broke through on their second try today.
