Season over, time for spring workouts

They’re not practices, really. More like tutorials. Players work on portions of their game, individually and with a coach. I know the season is long, but this seems like a breather without completely leaving the game behind. At least, that’s how I think USI coach Rodney Watson thinks of these spring workouts. So here are some notes and quotes from Watson himself, ahead of the workouts that will get going very soon:

“This is the time you can work on things that really need work. Unlike Division I, you can’t have court time (coaches working with players) over the summer. So now is the time.”

“In the spring, the kids need to work on, like (shooting) follow through … When they come back in the fall, we don’t want them to come back having to make major adjustments. In this case, they can go home and work on it there.”

“This is the time we do videotaping (of their shooting form) … Not a lot of team stuff … Maybe work on going the opposite direction in ball handling. Now is the time to give them three weeks of repetitive tweaking. They can go home and work on it in May and June.”

  1. Hopefully there is some emphasis on recruiting some shooters period! We have wasted some major talent down low because of the lack of shooting on these Watson lead teams.
