73-58 loss tonight vs. VAAS HS in the Championship game of the tournament. Incredibly valuable game though. A couple of the guys that I recently got back are talented, but haven't played organized ball in 2 years. They're used to getting away with certain things on the court strictly because they're talented, but tonight they got burned. VAAS runs a very aggressive 2-2-1 press, and my guys often stubbornly tried to dribble through it in the first half instead of using our press break to create easy opportunities. As the game went on, they started to get it, but it was too little, too late. Tonight's game was a good "this is why we work on these things" game on both ends of the court.
As a side note, I can't stand VAAS, and really want to face them in the playoffs. (yes, we ARE making playoffs this year) Check out the scores of some of their games this year....
Why? Because they press the entire
game, even if they're up by 60 in the 4th quarter against some overmatched group of kids.
I'd love to face him in the playoffs after we've had a few more practices with our full roster.
