How Eustachy changed CSU

Following the recent loss to UNLV, New Mexico now has two losses in Mountain West play, and is being closely followed in the conference rankings by one of the bigger surprises of the season: Colorado State. When various writers and analysts comprised their MWC preseason selections, the Rams lagged behind the Lobos, UNLV, San Diego State, and even Wyoming. While the season is ways from finished, and much could change in the hectic month that February always represents, one might assume Larry Eustachy will lead CSU to the NCAA tournament in just his first season at the school. So how did the former Southern Miss coach transform the squad, a unit that lost to Murray State in the second round of the NCAAs last season.
