Gents,

We're currently working on a button for the website to submit questions for the Shaka Smart Coaches Show. However, it will not be available today.

If you would like to submit a question in this thread, please do so. We'll be monitoring this thread.

However, you must include your real name and city location with the question, no handles, please.

Rock on.

A lot of us are curious about some of the substitutions. It seems that when someone gets hot, say...Joey hits back to back threes against Hofstra, or Brandon catches fire early against whoever, he immediately earns a ticket to the bench. What's the thought process behind benching the hot hand?
 
Now that we have entered the latter half of the season will you continue to play as many players as you have or settle into a 9 or 10 man rotation?

Can you elaborate on your technical foul during the Hofstra game?

can we expect to see a more aggressive approach to the press as the season progresses, or do you believe that due to the makeup of the squad a more conservative approach is in order?

Keep it up. I'm saving up my vacation days for March.

Coach Smart,

1. Who do you feel is the leader of this team, the guy you look in the eyes and ask him to get things done on and off the court?

2. VCU fans, myself included, have noticed that you are still actively recruiting. How do you accomplish this along with prepping for games, running practices and managing the season?

Thanks,

Jason Johnson

Coach Smart -

What is the secret to beating VCU? I need some help soon, my job is on the line. Just ask Al Groh what happens when you consistently fail to beat your in state rivals.

Sincerely,
C. Mooney, West End.

Where has Rodney been and what can we do so he has more of a presence at home games?

Sometimes when the opposition is busting open our press and scoring some easy baskets we remain in the full court pressure defense. Are you reticent to move away from the press in a game even when it's not working? If so, why? Is it a pace of game consideration? Maybe it causes fatigue for the opposition?

this sounds like a Keith Rafter question.

Not a bad question, but I think you have to include your name and location in order for it to get asked.
 
Coach Smart-

How would you compare the intensity in the Siegel Center to other arenas that you have coached at?
