During Tuesday's practice, Boyle made it very clear on several occasions that he did not like what he was seeing on the court. The team competitions were too one-sided; this coming just three days after the Black squad routed the White, 77-51, in an intrasquad scrimmage.
"What I want to see in practice every day is competitiveness," Boyle said. "I want to see guys getting after each other. I don't like to see lopsided scores."
Boyle said he would rather not have to yell at his team, but realizes he has to keep them focused.
"We have enough people around this program right now trying to make our guys feel good," he said. "They need somebody in there to (get on them)."
One of Boyle's criticisms of the team, he said, was that the players did not show a "hatred to lose."
"If we don't figure it out now, we'll figure it out the hard way (by losing a game)," he said.
