Our team had the past 10 days off from playing a game. We worked hard in practice on defense and taking care of the ball. The players were alive, energized and willing to learn.
Last night it showed as we beat Ann Arbor Huron 68-38.
Despite what Allen Iverson once said about practice, time spent during the week on the practice floor does matter.

Mike Macchi of CLNS Radio.com on the Boston Celtics 0-3 start…They host the Detroit Pistons tonight.
There are a ton of Celtics fans hitting the panic button right about now. And after a miserable 0-3 start, in which the scores do not even begin to tell the story, it is understandable. But, coming from the guy who has already said the team needs to trade Rajon Rondo and blow the whole team up because the window has indeed closed, I urge everyone in Celtics nation not to panic just yet.
KWCH News 12 in Ohio: A male high school basketball player in Ohio: Twitter, transfer, location, eligibility and the courts being involved.
Cook and his parents filed a lawsuit after the Ohio High School Athletic Association ruled earlier this month that he was ineligible to play. Officials claim his father moved him from Euclid High School to Warren, mainly so the 6’6″ Arthur could play for Harding–that would be against the association’s rules. But his parents, who recently separated, say that’s not true, and that Arthur’s father moved in with family there.
“Basketball did not play a role. He moved because we’re going through our own personal issues, and it is his desire to help his son transition to adulthood,” said the teen’s mother, Seanine Cook.
According to the lawsuit, the controversy was sparked by several tweets Arthur Cook sent from his Twitter account last summer.
One stated, “My dad just called me downstairs to tell me I’m going to either Shaker or Garfield.” Another stated, “I’m taking my talents to Heights.”
“Actually, they were horseplay because he didn’t know. He didn’t know where he was gonna go. It was all a joke between him and some of his other teammates,” Seanine Cook said.
Cook’s mother, who still lives in Euclid, says his father took him to Warren to focus on his grades, which she says have improved.
