Default What do you tell your team?

Watching the USA vs. VI game, and the USA vs. Venezuela games, it's starting to look like a D1 college team against a D3 high school team. I'm not a professional basketball player, but playing on one of those two teams would just be frustrating. Imagine coaching it.

Focus: If you were the VI coach, what would you tell your team before the game after watching the U.S. destroy a higher ranked Venezuela team? What would you tell your team while getting blown out for Venezuela and VI? What about after the game?

Before the game: Venezuela completely sucks. We have a legitimate chance in winning this.

After the game:......just kidding

I doubt any VI players expected anything less than a good old fashioned beating. Its not hard to be realistic in that sort of situation.

We are playing against the most talented team in the world. But we have hearts. We're better than them

I would have been coaching a 2-2-1 zone press and a 2-3 matchup zone defense. I also would hammered home the offensive philosophy of no quick shots unless it's an uncontested lay-up.

My pre-game talk would have been something about playing smart, working hard, and playing as a team. One of those "they are just a group of 12 guys but we are a TEAM" speeches.

That's just as bad as when a girl says she wants to just stay friends.

'Right guys, they maybe the most talented team in the world, but remember, we are just young and upcoming players and I frankly don't care how much we lose by, the only thing I care about is that you guys show you can defend and score, run our team's plays smoothly, get rebounds as best as possible. The key thing here today is run through the playbook and defend. Good luck guys."


After game:

Damnit, I lost 10 grand betting that you guys would lose by less than 40 points.

Focus on execution and defense. Run the plays, run the offense...if we lose , we lose. Don't worry about them, worry about VI, VI defense and VI offense...adn don't start watching them..just play.

Great point. The amount of times I've seen kids stop playing D and end up just watching the other team is ridiculous.
