SUMMER

Summer when I was a kid meant from the time school ended until it started again. In years past, I would take 2-3 weeks off as soon as the season was over and a week off here and there until August because practice didn’t start until October and games started a month later. When I started playing overseas that all changed with training camp/practice starting in August and games beginning in October. The last 5 seasons I have been here we have started practice August 1st and games begin the first weekend in September that’s really early. Season is over end of May and right back at it in August. So keeping myself ready at my young age is very important. Now I take 4 days off when the season ends and right back into my offseason workouts.

I also had 2 basketball camps. I want to thank all the players, parents, grand parents and aunts and uncles for their time and effort this summer. We had campers from Fayette, Lamar, Tuscaloosa, Walker, Marion, Pickens, and Marengo counties and a big crew from Columbus and Caledonia Mississippi. Keep working and keep in contact.

SEASON 13 GAME 5

We lost our last game 92-83. As you can tell we didn’t play defense very well. Its also the fact we have lost the same way to the same team in their gym for the 3rd year in a row. It was really Deja Vu, I could see how the game was going to end before it happened. That team always plays the same they drive they pass out for the 3. Guys who didn’t make shots the whole game made 3s in the 4th quarter. They were 0-4 coming into the game with 70 points per game and get 92 vs us. I am sick. I finished with 23 points 7 rebounds 3 assists and 3 steals with 3 turnovers.
