Simply put, Jordan Baker gets it done.
The 2011-12 BasketballBuzz Canada West Men’s Basketball Player of the Year believes the Alberta Golden Bears can defend their Canada West championship and earn a trip the CIS Final 8 despite a change in Head Coach.
With Francis, his first three years in the league were his first three years here. He was learning a lot as he was going and we as players were doing a lot of that learning with him. We would always talk about things — we were building our team identity at the same time,” Baker explained.
“Now (Craddock) comes in and he knows who he is as a coach; he’s established himself in CIS. Where a lot of guys are used to having a say in some things, (Craddock) is saying, ‘It’s my way or the highway.’ I think a lot of guys, myself included, are having a tough time adjusting to it, just making a change in how we guard ball screens or how we run transition.
“There’s a lot of Xs and Os, things that are different, but also just establishing himself as a coach with our team and us having to adjust to that.”
