    During the offseason I hear from a lot of players who ask me, "What should I be working on in order to get more playing time next season?" or "What should I be working on to take my game to another level?" While every player is certainly different and has certain skills that they as individuals needs to develop or strengthen, my response to them will always include one common factor - improving their ability to handle and control the basketball. Great ball handlers possess three primary skills: 1. They can change speeds -whether that is from slow to fast or from fast to super fast the…

The deal, filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago, calls for the NCAA to toughen return-to-play rules for players who receive head blows and create a $70 million fund to pay for thousands of current and former athletes to undergo testing to determine whether they suffered brain trauma while playing football and other contact sports.

    Iowa State basketball’s 2014-15 backcourt received a major boost when former UNLV guard Bryce Dejean-Jones committed back on April 14. The Rebels’ leading scorer from last year gives coach Fred Hoiberg a long guard that can both take it to the rack and light it up from outside. Perhaps the most exciting thing to Cyclone fans about Dejean-Jones choosing to play his final year of college basketball with ISU is the pure athleticism he will bring to the off-guard position.

Winslow impressed at St. John’s high school in Houston where he displayed his ability to crash the boards while playing tenacious defense at multiple positions. In his senior season he averaged 27.5 points per game while snagging just over 13.5 boards. Justise was ranked as the #14…

Between a bevy of returning talent — like Aaron and Andrew Harrison, along with the frontcourt trio of Willie Cauley-Stein, Dakari Johnson and Marcus Lee — and the No. 2 recruiting class in the country, expectations in Lexington are incredibly high. This team may even have the talent and experience to run the table and go undefeated. However, one former Wildcat believes that if undefeated talk does start, Kentucky’s players need to ignore it.

    Not even two years after Pauley Pavilion underwent a $136-million renovation, UCLA is probably going to have to put more money aside to restore the hallowed basketball arena. Flood water from a major water main break just north of the UCLA campus Tuesday evening left Pauley better suited to host a water polo match than a basketball game. Ankle-high rivers of water outside the arena were deep enough that some people took off their shoes to wade across and a couple students showed up with skim and boogey boards. Enough water spewed into Pauley Pavilion that both the floor and the locker rooms…

For all the glory days of the past, the fact is Marquette never had more than three players in the NBA until Chris Crawford joined Tony Smith, Amal McCaskill and Jim McIlvaine to make it four in 1998, and then never topped that figure until FIVE played in the NBA.

    28 Jul 2014 | 2:01 pm
    Not sure how Zach LaVine, the former Bothell High standout who bolted to the NBA after one season at UCLA, is going to make the transition from college to the pros. However, I'm willing to wager the Minnesota Timberwolves rookie guard is going to win the 2015 NBA slam-dunk contest that's going to be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York next February. LaVine is simply amazing in the air. Just watch a few highlights from this weekend at the Seattle Pro Am thanks to Brian Chen at Bleacher Report.

  • Why Release Rotation?

    John Snyder
    23 Jul 2014 | 3:24 pm
    "Release... Rotation... Splash..."This was one of my favorite catchphrases on Sportscenter when I was growing up. This phrase was popularized by Craig Kilborn. You would usually hear this on a 3-point highlight. Or when a golfer would hit a ball into the water.I always thought it was simple and to the point. Which is also how I hope each one of my posts end up.

    Las Vegas, NV – With the 2014 Las Vegas Summer League now complete, we take a look at how each draft pick performed in the event. Below is a power ranking of the performance: 1. Doug McDermott, Chicago Bulls (Pick 11): McDermott scored at a high level in the summer league and was the only rookie named to the All-NBA Summer League First Team. He averaged 18.0 points per game while shooting 44.2 percent from the field and 12-of-27 (44.4%) from three-point range. The 6-foot-8 small forward is an exceptional shooter who was decent on the defensive end. He also averaged 4.0 rebounds and 2.8…
  • Eight Rookies Who Struggled at the NBA Las Vegas Summer League

    24 Jul 2014 | 8:47 am
    Las Vegas, NV – Here’s our look at eight rookies who struggled at the recently completed Las Vegas NBA Summer League. 1. Dante Exum, Utah Jazz (Pick 5): In his first taste of American competition, Exum was inconsistent but showed flashes of potential. He averaged 7.2 points, 2.8 assists, and 2.6 rebounds per game but was just 30.8 percent from the field and 3-of-18 from deep. Exum has the size at 6-foot-6 to go with the length and athleticism that warrants a high ceiling. He showed the ability to play alongside Trey Burke and should be able to run the point for stretches as well…

Glen Rice Jr., Washington Wizards: Rice Jr. was named the MVP of the Las Vegas Summer League after leading the event in scoring.

    There's a game coming up and it doesn't really matter who it's against. You pull out whatever game videos you have and watch them for the fourth or fifth time. You come up with a list of things your team needs to work on in order to be fully prepared and also make a list of your opponent's tendencies that you need to either stop or defend. The information you gather from the video is put into a written scouting report that is distributed to each of your players.

  • Tennis Ball Drills That Will Improve Your Ball Handling Skills

    16 Jul 2014 | 11:00 am
    During the offseason I hear from a lot of players who ask me, "What should I be working on in order to get more playing time next season?" or "What should I be working on to take my game to another level?" While every player is certainly different and has certain skills that they as individuals needs to develop or strengthen, my response to them will always include one common factor - improving their ability to handle and control the basketball. Great ball handlers possess three primary skills: 1. They can change speeds -whether that is from slow to fast or from fast to super fast the…
  • Why NBA Teams Don’t Run Motion Offense

    9 Jul 2014 | 11:00 am
    There might not be a more overused term in the entire game of basketball than "motion offense." Not only is it overused but it is also grossly misunderstood by many fans, players, and even coaches. Part of the confusion lies in the fact that a simple internet search of "motion offense" will return links featuring 5 Out Motion, 4 Out 1 In Motion, 3 Out 2 In Motion, and 2 Out 3 In Motion. There are also sub categories of motion offense. For example, when it comes to running a 5 Out motion offense I have specific notes that I've collected from other coaches on a pass and cut motion, a screening…

    30 Jul 2014 | 3:25 pm
    by Brian Flinn With a number of shooting guards graduating from Ole Miss after this upcoming season, head coach Andy Kennedy and assistant coach Bill Armstrong knew that landing one in this class was of upmost importance. On Wednesday afternoon he did just that, getting a commitment from Memphis product Terence Davis. The athletic wing prospect has always had a ton of potential, but really took his game to another level when he decided to focus on basketball. Now he is working to further develop the range and consistency of his jumper and become a complete scorer. “Terance Davis means a…
  • The Blowup: Moyer Drawing National Interest

    29 Jul 2014 | 9:36 am
    by Brian Flinn Every year, July proves to be the biggest proving ground for prospects, and with only one live period this past April, that was even truer. With the marathon that is the July recruiting period, there is always a handful of prospects that really see their stock take off and pick up a large amount of offers. This year the argument can be made that no player saw their stock take off more than Ohio native Matt Moyer. Playing with the VCC Ohio Warriors, Moyer took off during the first live period with his strong play at the Reebok Breakout Classic and Elevate Showdown. Flanked by…

Along with point guard Jawun Evans, Whitt was one of the most hyped standouts at the NBPA Top 100 Camp in June. Overall, Whitt has proven to be a dynamic scorer who is skilled enough to play the point or the off-guard. Last week, Whitt took to the court at AAU Nationals with KC Run GMC in Louisville, where he continued to light up the scoreboard at a high level. One of his best performances came at Freedom Hall in front of Illinois head coach John Groce. Whitt nailed threes,…

    27 Jul 2014 | 6:10 am
     Does Your Basketball Training Plan Monitor Your Sleep? You know those mornings when you feel like you got out of bed on the wrong side so to speak? This is a result of not getting enough deep sleep during the night to promote full relaxation which typically sets a tired tone for the day. It’s a known fact that sleeping is an essential daily activity needed to maintain excellent health and well-being. If this is the case, then why are so many of us putting getting enough rest every night towards the end of our priority list? It just doesn’t make sense. Did you realize that 40 million…

    Leaving it All on the Court will Help You Achieve Your Basketball Dreams There’s 5 minutes left in the fourth quarter and you’ve played practically, if not every minute of the game up to this point. You’re exhausted and drained from your efforts, but it’s such a close game that to let up now might mean that your team doesn’t get the win. So, what will you do?  Do you begin to play half speed, slacking on defense and giving up easy points to the other team? Or, do you light a fire within and begin pouring every bit of yourself into the game playing obviously harder and smarter than…

    2 Jul 2014 | 7:13 am
    Choosing Healthy Carbohydrates for Optimal Basketball Performance  There is a lot of controversy over carbohydrates floating around the internet these days.  While some diets recommend that you go as low carb as possible, others simply recommend that you switch to focusing on what kind of carbohydrates you are consuming. Basketball players certainly need carbohydrates because of all the energy expended during workouts, practices and games. I like to think of carbohydrates like the gas in a car – without it, you aren’t getting anywhere very quickly right?  So, when it comes to…
