A) University of Denver coach Joe Scott (the former coach at Air Force) is pleased with the progress of former Evangelical Christian Academy star Rob Lewis.
Lewis, like AFA stars Antoine Hood and Tim Keller, gets the full Scott treatment because Scott sees tremendous potential in Lewis, a 6-foot-8 sophomore. That means Scott is constantly prodding Lewis to improve.
“He’s doing real well,” Scott said of Lewis. “He struggled a little early in the season. Well, not really struggled. He just had some trouble going from his freshman to sophomore year. He’s played real well the the last two weeks. I’m happy for him. I told him yesterday, ‘I want to see this guy all the time.’ He obviously has the physical tools.”
B) Former Air Force star A.J. Kuhle, now a DU assistant, says his alma mater has fallen, but it used to be even worse.
“They’re light years ahead of where they were when we walked in the door,” said Kuhle, referring to 2000, when he and Scott arrived at AFA.
C) Scott scoffs at talk of a “turnaround” at DU. The Pioneers lost 25 of 29 games two seasons ago. This season, DU is 8-8 in the Sun Belt Conference and 13-14 overall.
“I don’t know if we can call it a turnaround yet,” he said. “We’re still in the process.”
