New Guys, Win and Learn

I’d like to welcome the 10U team to the #HUSLFAM This is an exciting time, it the beginning of the 2026 era for HUSL. I’m excited, are you?

Playing in the travel ball is intense. Some teams play players down and some play up. Some teams recruit some teams build within. Minutes are earned and feelings get burned, but through it all you either win or learn. Yesterday we received 3 lessons. I hope it is lessons we will never forget. 1. “We wins as team, gotta play as a team.” 2. “If you want to win, you have to hustle.” 3. “Value the ball, teams that value the ball usually wins, ie: rebounds, turnovers, steals and shot selection.” Simple but true facts. #learnfromit


This has to be the most exciting play other than the dunk. Master these moves to go viral. The most important parts to Breaking Ankles is reading the defense, change of pace and sudden movements. Reading is fundamental. Learn to read, it will change the speed of the game and change the way you play, the way the defense plays you. Change of pace keeps the defense on their toes. If they transfer to their heels, take it to the rack. Sudden movements cause an action. When the defense tries to react to your reverse or crossover…call the medic. Another ankle broken. With all other basketball moves, this takes practice over and over just to get it off 1 time in a game.

Practice? We’re talking about practice?

Perfect practice makes Perfect. Effort is everything in practice and the game. As a coach, I cannot teach you that, it comes from inside. You either want it or you don’t. Coaches can only evaluate if you are demonstrating that you are exerting your efforts to play your best. When we play our best in a game, we get to scrimmage against our teammates in the following practice.


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.
