ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – Saturday morning at the Legends of the Hardwood breakfast honoring Del Harris with the John Wooden 7 Keys to Life Award, former LSU coach Dale Brown told Clark Kellogg his LSU team didn’t get hot.
“They got confident,” Brown said. “And once that confidence took over they did things their minds knew they could do even if somebody said it was impossible.”
Granted Brown’s team fell to Louisville in the semi finals in 1986, but they got to the Final Four nonetheless.
UCONN’s Deandre Daniels absolutely sounds like he’s confident after rolling the odds on favorite Florida 63-54 in the semifinals at AT&T Stadium.
“We don’t back down from nobody no matter who it is,” Daniels said. “This team has heart and we won’t back down.”
