2012-13 Foshay Wolverines Thread (LEAGUE CHAMPIONS!!!!)

This is my HS squad. Probably better to make this than to spam the NBA thread.

We're 5-7 on the year, which I'm pretty happy about. The year before I took over we were 1-11, with an average margin of defeat of 30.5ppg. Last year we were 2-9 and cut our point differential in half, and this year we're at a -2.5. We closed out our non-conference schedule winning 4 out of 5 games, which is the first time that's happened at the school since 2004. Even more satisfying, this was without my 4 best guys, and my 2 leading scorers from last year. The kids are REALLY growing and showing a more thorough grasp of the game.

Tonight I got news that my 2 best players will be back on the team for league & (hopefully) playoffs, and the 3rd & 4th guys probably won't be eligible. This is great news. In non-conference I had a pretty small team that could shoot, but got murdered on the boards (which I share the blame in) and couldn't dribble penetrate. I get my two best rebounders back, and my best dribble penetrator back, which I'm really happy about. Defensively, our 2-3 Zone has been fairly effective, and our 1-3-1 is improving. Our zone press even created some turnovers, but we have a ways to go on the latter two.

Two of my guys made all-tournament in one of the tourneys we played, which I'm very proud of. If you want to support the team, there are links below. Even $5 helps.

The kid you awkwardly have your left hand on next to SF69ers looks like Brandon Lloyd if you zoom in

LOL, he does. When I first met him, he was much more of a skater/surfer than a basketball player. Really good kid.
Here's the maxpreps link if anyone GAF.

Be a lot cooler if they were the Foshay Jacksons.
Or if it was Fo' Shay

Looks like I'm getting my 3rd best guy back too. I've been through a lot with this kid, and he's now on track to graduate. He's extremely undisciplined on the court, but he respects me and I think I'll be able to reign him in. He's far and away my most athletic guy. Very excited.
