In the season, we made a change to the zone defense out of the necessity. We had a young, inexperienced team that lacked size and strength. Post defense and rebounding were going to be major concerns. Coach Marshall’s zone defense is a big reason that we won the state championship, made another state tournament appearance and were competitive the season before that.

The Wooden Legends of Coaching Award is a lifetime achievement award established prior to the 1998–99 season. Selection for the award depends upon a number of on- and off-court factors, from coaching success and philosophy to evidence of good character to graduation rates. Rick Barnes won the Wooden Legends of Coaching Award following the 2008–09 season. In the 2016 Olympics, Durant again led the U.S. men’s team in scoring with 155 total points—one point fewer than his U.S. He finished second on the team in steals, third in assists, and fourth in rebounding.

Big Eight Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament

Remember, the best way to win Milk Can is to bank the ball off the back rim with some backspin. A soft, low-arc toss, with plenty of backspin will ensure that the ball sinks into the hole. Don’t assume you understand how the game works or what the rules are.

But since the 2nd half of the 2/16 Phoenix game, they’ve been at the very worst, solid defensively. They aren’t giving up 122 points to the Pistons or anything like that in this stretch. The Bearcats have played their home games in Fifth Third Arena since 1989. It is located in the Myrl H.

Baylor Wins National Title

This allows time for an offensive rebound and a second shot, but not much time for the opponent to get the ball up the floor off the rebound. Also, it takes some of the pressure off the shooter when there are 6 seconds left, as he/she knows there is a chance for a rebound and put back. Sometimes I will look over at the opposing coach and notice that he is going to call time-out, and this may save one for me.
