Who the heck is Jim Harrick to say what real basketball is? If I remember correctly, the rules of the game never state what style must be played. The only thing that matters, especially in collegiate sports, is that the teams give 100%, play fairly, enjoy themselves and try to win. If that means running up and down the court, shooting three-pointers or milking the 45-second clock for one shot, or even as Harrick says, “playing disciplined defense and showing some evidence of restraint,” so be it.
