Days of Pain; Welcome to College Basketball

Posted: August 29, 2017 in AVC Men's Basketball

You don’t win 20+ games a year for the last 10 years without it.  You don’t battle your way to the State Tournament/Elite 8 two straight years without it.  90% of your graduates don’t get university scholarships and two players a year don’t sign professional contracts without it.  Toughness and Character.  Yesterday was one of those days that builds the toughness and character that talented AVC players must have.

  • 104 outside and a balmy 90 degrees in the gym.
  • 20 minutes diving for lose balls.
  • Defense, defense, defense drills
  • Non-stop intense physical work with no breaks for two hours.
  • Three to four hours of college classes.  Study time.

It could be too  much for some.  Especially those who took the summer off and now are trying to catch back up.  I know there was a lot of groaning and moaning this morning when the AVC players stumbled out of bed to start the daily process over again.
