(Tulsa-AP) -- Tulsa basketball players like their first impression of new head coach Buzz Peterson.
Senior guard Marcus Hill says he thinks Peterson will be a good fit for Tulsa with his background and connections. And junior guard Greg Harrington says he immediately felt at ease with Peterson.
Harrington says he respects Peterson's position that Christ comes first, then his family and third his profession.
Harrington says he likes that Peterson is 37-years-old and feels the younger coaches are, the more they listen to players.
It's forward David Shelton's fourth coach in four years at Tulsa and in junior college. But Shelton says he's been fortunate to have great coaches.
