INSIDE THE GAME
December 30, 2009
FYI - the numbers next to kids names for the 2015 class are not their ranking. We have not done those yet and they will be completed later this week. For now there are just a bunch of names with numbers for that class but we will adjust that later this week.
Couple things just wanted to address...
Can't stress enough to all you young talented players on the rise how important it is to be active and play hard on both ends every time you take the court. You really never know who is watching and being active and playing hard is a major piece that every coach looks at. Rankings are nice and hype is great but in reality its how hard you play and what you do on the court and in the classroom that matters the most.
To all you young guys just finishing middle school or just starting high school please focus hard on those books as it will really help you in the long run and make it a lot easier and a lot less stressful for you later on during the recruiting process. If you don't understand something, don't be afraid to ask questions and get it figured out. There are no dumb questions in the classroom. Basketball is one piece of the puzzle, if you don't have the grades you will severly limit your options at the collegiate level. Take care of the books and basketball and you give yourself the best possible chance to achieve your dreams both on and off the court...
