Coming off a Tournament Championship I was afraid of the Big Game Letdown Syndrome. Many times after a team wins a big game, they are so excited and don’t prepare well for their next opponent. I did not help our efforts by having a pizza party on this past Tuesday but the boys deserved every slice. The following Thursday I dug into our boys. The practice was intense and directed to not take anyone lightly. Then Justin says to me, “Coach I may not be here for the game.” Thankfully he told me then, It allowed me to insert TJ to play with the starters at practice.The Big Man on Campus stepped his game up. He got 8 points, 10 rebounds, 1 block and 2 steals. Way to go big fella. That is the expectation for everyone on this team. When a teammate is not available, the next one steps up. Speaking of this team, everyone scored in this game. We seem to always have a slow start, I’m trying new things to get us to start faster. But nothing seems to be working. We’re not giving up leads as much but the first 8 minutes of this game we had a 3-2 lead, I believe.
At any rate, our defense was top notch today. Gamepoint didn’t score a game point in the second half. Awesome team defense by everyone. The score 32-5 doesn’t tell half the story nor does this review or the follow stats. We are not 2 or 3 players, we are 10 strong, we are HUSL ELITE!
