Shooting and Defense wins games

Butler proved once again if you can shoot Free Throws and 3 point shots at a high percentage and take care of the Ball. Defend and Rebound you can beat anybody. Fundamental Basketball wins every time. You win with Guards and Butlers Guards can play.

A "FEW" good men the Gonzaga Bulldog Story

Mark Few is one of the best at developing players. Again he proves if you can teach and coach you beat anybody. The Tarheels are young but they will get better. Josh Heytvelt makes a name for himself in the Big Apple against Tyler Hansborough. The Zags more experience backcourt was the difference.

The Butler did it as Todd Lickliter Bulldogs roll over Bruce Pearls Volunteers

Great win for the Butler Bulldogs led by their Great Coach Todd Lickliter who is a tremendous teacher of the game. They put away Tennessee with a great containing Man to Man Defense and they ran their stuff very well. Congratulations again to Coach Lickliter who I have had the pleasure of working with at Five-Star Basketball Camp.

The Bill O'Reilly no spin zone approach to Free Throw Shooting

What I don't understand is player's screwing up their Free-Throw Shooting by spinning the ball in their hands. I was working with a Division 1 Prospect yesterday who by the way is an outstanding shooter in a workout and he was only shooting Free-Throws at 70 % clip, I told him to stop and use the no spin zone approach and he proceeded to hit 20 in a row. This is one of those little that help.

Great Basketball people

Two of the best people in the business are Coach Phil Martelli and Coach Bob Hurley who loved to teach the game and talked about the game. Young Coach's need to watch a practice from these coaches to appreciate the art of coaching.
