ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS/NOTES:

• Basketball wise:

  • Goals are focused on the process, and not the W&Ls.  Teaching fundamentally sound team basketball and focused on being the best they can be individually and as a team. The W&Ls will come.
  • Teach the young men how to compete hard, and play tough basketball.
  • Strong full court man defense, and rebounding
  • Focus on and attention to details every day in practice
  • Based on the team’s and individual performances last AAU season,
    • A few players on the team are getting interest from D2/D3 schools already
    • One player is getting interest from D1 Mid-Majors and many D2/D3 schools
  • Some of these players have been invited and will be attending college elite prospect camps this spring/summer.
