The title might lead you to believe that our team is struggling offensively or defensively, chemistry isn't clicking, or overall record isn't as good as we would like. Truth is, none of that is the case. We've won our last 9 games by an average of 34 points. We are undefeated right now in our conference. On the surface, we have never played better. The level of competition that we play has been bad, which is one of the reasons we are winning games by such a wide margin. However, our coaching staff knows that we have tougher games to play in our season and the way we are performing now isn't going to be good enough. My question is how do you coach through this type of issue? Do you make things harder for the players/team during game situations by saying, "Let's make 7 or 8 passes before a shot" or "I want so and so to score out of this set play"? Is it unreasonable to hold players back in that regard in order to add a little extra adversity to a game? This is my first post here. I've been reading a lot of the stuff on this website and love it! Can't wait to hear some of your replies. Thanks!
