SOME BASKETBALL THOUGHTS FROM KEVIN O'NEILL

Two things about offense. If you had two things, and only two things, you could have a decent offense. They are good shot selection and spacing. These are the two hardest things to teach in offense.

Start all your offensive drills on the far side of the center circle.

Our challenge as coaches is to make the players believe.

You must find one defense and make that your trademark, one that the kids really believe in. The first thing you must do defensively is don’t give up easy baskets. We put a real premium on not giving up an easy basket in transition.

We lift and run year round. We lift four times a week off-season and run twice a week for 45 minutes. If your muscles are in great shape, you don’t get hurt.
