We came into this game 0-3 and we badly needed a win for our confidence and just to re-affirm our direction. I had to sit our best player and another rotation player because of their actions in our previous practice. They sat out the entire first quarter which was a risk considering our record coming in. We played very conservatively in the first but came out with a small lead. In the second we went full-court man for the first time this season. I am an aggressive coach and I had to try this at some point. My assistant had worked with the other half of the team on a 2-3 when they came in I handed the coaching reins to him and it all seemed to work! My best player wound up with 20 points in three quarters of a game although he over-passed on a number of occasions. There were many encouraging signs in this game and we were re-vitalized by a much needed win! I also saw many things that we need to work on in practice this week. Also I was able to make a point to two of my players and I guess everyone on the team about what is expected in practice.
