Glen Rose, who was drafted to return to the University of Arkansas as basketball coach this year, lets it be known that he doesn't consider himself a miracle man despite his reputation for winning. : + "Your success depends far more ' on the players you have than on what you tell the players," he told the student mentors at the Arkansas Coaching School here yesterday. "The coach who wins consistently is the coach who gets the good players year after year," he said. "The coach being smart Is not BO- Ing to win many samps. My biggest job is finding good players. "Regardless ol your players, your |ob Is to Ret the most out o! the material you have. You have to fit yoar system to your material."

He susses ted providing courts at grade schools "and.let the kids shoot." The lanky, poker-faced former Razorback athletic star who turned out five Southwest Conference champions at Arkansas and in recent years has produced fine Learns at Stephen F. Austin College said he'JJ use a single pivot style of play j with a. fast break next season. i It won't be a running game alto- ' gether. though, he explained. "I want my boys to recognize fast break opportunities and to use the fast, break at the right lime— not just run helter-skelter -down the floor. I want my men to fae aggressive at all times." This was Rose's first major public appearance since he succeeded Presley Askew, a ball-control coach, at Arkansas. "Another thing/' he said. "I don't believe in these long slab's in the fourth quarter, but R tot of teams use them." Rose described the basketball situation in rhe Southwest Conference as "a healthy situation." "Our basketball may not bft as Qood a.s that in fioine other .sections, b'nt down here we, play for our own league, championship and don't over-emphasize the game. Too many basketball teams are trying for national championships. I think the NCAA playoffs are as responsible as anything else for over-emphasis of basketball today." Jack Gardner of Kansas State, who is the other chief cage Instructor at the srhool, said the- first, things he looks for in selecting a player are intelligence, spirit, speed, size, timing, looseness and ability to execute the skills of the game—in that order. "Basketball, 1 ' Gardner said, "is a eame of habits. A couch's Job is to give his players good habits. It's like eronviner your swing In eoU." The coaching school closes'today.
