Never Ever Ever Give Up
“Basketball is a joyful, passionate game. It is free flowing and un-choreographable! We don’t know what’s going to happen from 1 moment to the next. Players with skill relish this freedom. Players without sharp skills often find the game chore-like. Be relentless about skill development and conditioning.”
~ Coach McGannon
