The athleticism and speed the Rams have up and down the roster is above-average at worst and oftentimes better than that, allowing them to operate at breakneck speeds. One second an opposing ball handler is coming across the half-court line and the next Paoli is dropping in a layup for an easy two or drawing a foul.
