When Dave Leitao took over as Virginia coach in the spring of 2005, he said this: "If you look at any sport, defense is what wins championships and wins at the highest level. If you have good pitching and good fielding, you’re going to win a lot of games in baseball. The greatest coaches in football have had great defenses. Those go down in history. It’s the same in the sport of basketball. It’s what I learned and what we believe in." When Leitao took over as coach of the Maine Red Claws of the NBADL yesterday, he said this: "If you look at any sport at the highest level, defense is what wins championships and wins. If you have good pitching and good fielding, you’re going to win a lot of games in baseball. The greatest coaches in football have had great defenses. It’s the same in basketball. It’s what I learned, and it’s what I believe in." I give Leitao credit. He believes in the same basketball principles today that he did seven years ago!
