Exclamation Point!

I believe the best coaches are great teachers. My philosophy in teaching is to keep the game as simple as possible. Here are a few examples:

1) Shot-If a shooter needs work on her shot, I take things out rather than add to the shot. Less room for error.
2) Moves-You need 2 great moves, and a counter.
3) What you emphasize is where the best results will show.

I figure if it's too much for me then it's way to complicated for them. Play Hard and Play Smart! Oh, yeah, and keep it simple. Our kids think enough off the court academically to have to think TOO much on the court. They play their best when they actually just play!

Piece of the Puzzle

This past weekend we had a team meeting to address player roles.

Here's what I believe are the necessities for each individual's part to build a championship team.

1) Every player understands their role, values their role, and performs to their best in that role consistently.
2) Every player puts the team before themselves.
3) Players have great attitudes but are not content or complacent with those roles.

Just like a great marriage, each role may be different but just as important. Build each other up and see what happens.

Tie the Knot

Nubia Garcia has done it! She is the first former Bobcat to get married.

I want to congratulate Nubia and her new husband Colter and wish them the very best. I also want to thank Nubia's mom for making such a wonderful spread.

If anyone has met Nubia and her strong mind and spirit I think it stems from her mom. Not only did her mom prepare a meal for over 100 people, she also made the bread baskets, desserts, and an amazing cake.

I am exhausted just thinking about what she did to make a perfect evening for the newlyweds.

God Bless on a wonderful future ahead!

We are in Boise to play my alma mater. The good news is that our bench is the same side that I played when I was a Bronco so it feels like home court advantage to me.

I also told my team about the time MSU came into town and beat BSU at the buzzer on a back screen for Cass Bauer. Let's hope we have the same outcome for the Bobcats tonight.

My former boss and also National Championship Stanford Cardinal, Trish Stevens talked to my team at the beginning of our shootaround. I still get goosebumps when I hear her inspirational words. Thank you to Trish for talking to my team.

Last but not least, our players HAD to see the blue turf so I took them to the stadium where it was covered with snow. Snow doesn't stop anyone from Bozeman so they made some snow angels until they uncovered the BLUE.

Go Cats, and Go Broncos (after tonight)!
