PLAYING SMART

Ponit Guard

Prepare for the best. When physical talent and abilities become even, then "little things" become paramount. When learning and refining basketball skills, it is just as important to learn "WHY" and "WHEN" as well as "HOW" to perform and execute them. By knowing what to do in certain offensive and defensively situations such as end of game, free throw, jump balls, out of bounds, full and half court pressure, as well as knowing the rules will certainly provide players with a definite competitive advantage.

Playing Smart

Successful players gain a competitive advantage by playing intelligently. Player performance is dependent on the correct execution of the basic fundamentals and timing. All the basketball skills and abilities in the world are of little value unless they are applied correctly.
