Togetherness: A pack mentality

During the game, assistant coach Dustin Ford seemed to be making the substitutions. "Nnanna, go get Sam" he said at one point. "Ibby, sit next to me" he said later, prior to Djimde entering the game.

After the game, Ford explained the process. It's the head coach who makes the call, but the assistants prep the players for entering game situations. Thus, Groce can maintain a moment-by-moment vigil over ongoing events. Togetherness includes delegation of responsibilities.
