MAKE IN PRACTICE, MISS IN GAMES?!?!?

Hey guys! Game Speed sound familiar? Here is the solution for all you guys missing shots in games and making them in practice or at home. It’s a lot easier to make the layup or shot when no one is playing defense. But when you’re going 100 and you go up for a layup and you ball careens off the basket, then you make the biggest mistake by looking a me confirming your missed basket… Game Speed is the reason why. Your speed and movement are foreign. Remember to go 100% in practice and see your percentages go up.

SOPAC Tourney Review~Do we want to play?

It took me 3 days to review the tape. Monica you did a great job, thank you! My initial thought were we got out hustled. But in order to get out hustled we have to hustle and we didn’t. I can take the mistakes if we hustle and I can take a loss if we hustle. But this time around we did not own the names on our jerseys.

In game 1 we managed to have 19 turnovers and 6 steals for minus 13. We shot 25% from the field 8 made of 32 attempts. Highest rebounder got 4 rebounds.

We made an improvement in Game 2 with 6 turnovers and 8 steals for plus 2. We shot 15 percent from the field 6 of 40 shots. Highest rebounder got 8 rebounds

It is real difficult to win games when we are negative in the turnover ratio and also when our shooting percentages are in the teens. Even if we hustle on defense, it will be hard to win a game with low field goal percentages or several turnovers.
