EAST LANSING TROJANS BASKETBALL

Thursday, December 15, 2016

It’s season number seven for me as head coach of the boys varsity basketball team at East Lansing High School.

Thanks for visiting. Going to change direction a bit with the blog.

In the past I have posted quotes from players and coaches. From this day on, I will post items about our team keeping you updated on our progress.

The Trojans currently are 1-0 in conference play,  3-0 overall on the season. We’ve won on the road at Dewitt and Haslett.  Our lone home game was a big conference win over Jackson High last Friday night.

Today we prep for a very tough road game tomorrow night at Lansing Everett; alma mater of the greatest point guard in the history of basketball, Magic Johnson.

Yesterday the team watched film of our game against Haslett, a 71-31 victory. We also took a look at Everett to learn a little bit about their team. Everett is well-coached, quick and fast. It’s going to be a very tough game.

Lots to do cover today at practice. We go from 3:00 to 4:45.

Our Freshmen and Junior Varsity teams play at home tonight; freshmen starts at 5:30, followed by JV at 7:00

“We hang out with these guys more than anyone off the court, everywhere. Go to dinner, hang out, so we’re always doing a little routine all the time. It’s all part of being a brotherhood, man, being around each other for so long. I look forward to the start of games. That’s one thing I really missed when I was out, was just the routines and just interact with your teammates and getting ready before the games. It means a lot to me. I don’t know about everybody else, but it means a lot to me.”
