o Practice with a purpose
o If you let it happen in practice and it happens in a game then it is the coaches fault
o The end goal isn’t outworking everybody or putting in more hours than everybody. It’s about what you do with those hours
o When you can’t decide whether to practice or not one day, ask your seniors and captains for their input. It gives them ownership.
o Every now and then do a 45 minute practice with a purpose
o Have players rank their teammates (best in weight room, hardest worker, best teammate, etc…)
· Play guys who are rested and ready to go as much as possible
o All Belmont did was put man on ball and play passing angles. Didn’t get beat deep.
o If ball came into your man, then just turn him as much as possible coming up court
