Even some of the greats have tasted defeat. The key is bouncing back…

NBA finals record



I think it was Rudy Tomjanovich who said, “don’t ever underestimate the heart of a champion.”

How about our guy Manu Ginobili last night? Well this champ has a huge heart.

Against the Houston Rockets in Game 5, the “old man” came up with a huge defensive play on the game’s last possession.

He blocked James Harden’s potential game-tying three.

Spurs held on 110-107 to take a 3-2 lead as the series shifts to Houston.

Hats off to Manu – the guy came up big last night.

How about the Spurs “assists to turnovers” last night?

24 assists – only 7 turnovers.

Always play the right way.

Big road, conference win last night for the East Lansing Trojans. 59-53 over the Vikings of Everett.

Brandon “Human Eraser” Johns was unreal. 15 points, 8 rebounds and 7 blocks. This, in front of Michigan head coach John Beilein.


We are on that NBA schedule. Tonight we travel to Grand Rapids for a non-conference game to take on Ottawa Hills.

4-0 on the season, 2-0 in the CAAC Blue.  The Trojans have now won 19 straight conference games.

Happy Holidays

Coach Finamore


That’s right. You want to excel in basketball, well then there’s never an off-season.

I’m not saying you have to play ball 24-7-365. No sir. I am saying you have to work on your game as much as possible. Take some time to rest. That’s okay.

With the beginning of July, Travel Team basketball is upon us. High school basketball players will be traveling around the country competing against each other. College players are in the gym working out. Open gym at night. And the NBA players, well summer league is right around the corner.

Last month high school teams played in summer leagues and attended team camps. Our team at East Lansing played 11 summer league games and attended two team camps. We also squeezed in three practices.

If you want to get better, there’s never an off-season…
