So far this year, we haven't seen the normal defensive intensity from a Tad team. Maybe it's the new rules making it harder. Maybe it's the youth. I don't care. This team needs to step up and defend the way the 2011-12 team did. Even without Spencer, it's more talented than that squad. If it can find that same level of grit, this team can play .500 or better ball in the Pac-12 and advance in the Dance.
