Media: If there was something you were trying to get out of Amath M’Baye, it seems like you have gotten that out of him.
Lon Kruger: Yeah, Amath is doing better all the time. I think he’s making jumpers. He’s attacking the rim. He’s making good plays defensively. Yeah, I think Amath’s doing a good job. I think, we’re going to see him get more and more comfortable as Big 12 goes on.
How much confidence did you think you’d have to build with him over the season since this is a level he’s never been at?
Before the year started, didn’t really think about it that being a part of it all. Obviously in December, it became the biggest part of it all, but then again you never know what to expect exactly when things start in October, but that became a big factor for him. He works so hard. He’s so conscientious. He kind of burdened himself with doing everything great all the time and it just wasn’t happening for him. I think the best thing for him was he just kept working at it and plugging away and got himself back around.
Baylor is long and athletic. How does Amath compare to those guys?
