Rather than introduce a Midnight Madness event or hold on-campus workouts, coach Brad Stevens took the Bulldogs to a two-day minicamp at Franklin College. They conducted a crisp, drill-filled practice from 6-8 p.m. Friday and will to have two sessions today. Fall break coincides with this weekend, so Stevens had an opportunity to hold such a camp.
"The most important part of our preseason is to prepare our team," he said. "First of all, we've never had a Midnight Madness. The last thing I want to do is change that, because I don't want to insinuate to our team that we're changing our focus.
"That is, we're preparing for March Madness, and we're trying to be a part of that."
