I talked to a high school basketball coach yesterday right after he lost a tough game. It’s the second time in a row his team has come out slow to start the game.
“Don’t worry.” I explained to him. “It’s only Decemeber!”
Now is the time to get the kinks out. Get after it in practice, get better and coach for Jan.-Feb.-and of course March.
Which brings me to something a big time college D-1 basketball coach said to me a few years ago.
Me: Coach, are you guys having Midnight Madness this year?
Coach: Steve, we don’t worry about Midnight Madness, all we care about is March Madness!
