Rare Update

I haven't updated recently because I haven't been coaching. I am only coaching my AAU team this year so this is still my off season I guess.

I have been watching all the games I can though. I have picked up a few plays and sets from different college teams. I have been watching NBA games also. I haven't been a big fan of the NBA since Jordan retired but this year I have been excited to watch games. I haven't picked up too many sets from NBA games, but their late game situational plays are probably what I can incorporate the most.

I have planned out what I want to do offensively and defensively with my team. I am now working on how I am going to teach my stuff systemically. I really want to run stuff that is going to help all the player progress individually while also letting us have success as a team. When you win in AAU tournaments consistently and make deep runs frequently people start to notice and will check the team out. That gets players attention from colleges and player ranking services. So that's what I am currently thinking about.

Congratulations to Zack Novak who broke the career scoring record for Chesterton High School in the first game of the season. He has had a great career so far and I hope he gets a chance to contribute to a division I program next year.
