Nate Oats stood in front of his University at Buffalo basketball team Tuesday night, glaring a hole in the stat sheet he was holding. He looked up at his players, cramped in the small locker room normally used by the Akron men’s soccer team, then back at the stat sheet.
The room was quiet. Finally, he spoke.
“Fellas, if I tell you a team had six assists and  turnovers in a game, what would you say happened to them in that game?”
“They lost,” came a chorus of voices.
He nodded and went on. “And when a team has six assists, what would you say about that team that night?”
The chorus was equally quick but in unison the second time: “They were selfish.”
