Every Player is part of something greater....A TEAM! A team that becomes a family who believes in each other! We welcome each player into our family. They are an important part of our lives and our children's lives. Our oldest son calls them his "Big Brothers."
JOHN WOODEN: "Success is peace of mind which is a direst result of self satisfication in knowing you made the effort to do the best of which you are capable."
THE DREAM TEAM
What It Takes to be Number One
"Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all the time thing. You don't win once in a while; you don't do things right once in a while; you do them right all of the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
There is no room for second place. There is only one place in my game, and that's first place. I have finished second twice in my time at Green Bay, and I don't ever want to finish second again. There is a second place bowl game, but it is a game for losers played by losers. It is and always has been an American zeal to be first in anything we do, and to win, and to win, and to win.
Every time a football player goes to play his trade he's got to play from the ground up - from the soles of his feet right up to his head. Every inch of him has to play. Some guys play with their heads. That's O.K. You've got to be smart to be number one in any business. But more importantly, you've got to play with your heart, with every fiber of your body. If you're lucky enough to find a guy with a lot of head and a lot of heart, he's never going to come off the field second.
Running a football team is no different than running any other kind of organization - an army, a political party or a business. The principles are the same. The object is to win - to beat the other guy. Maybe that sounds hard or cruel. I don't think it is.
It is a reality of life that men are competitive and the most competitive games draw the most competitive men. That's why they are there - to compete. The object is to win fairly, squarely, by the rules - but to win.
And in truth, I've never known a man worth his salt who in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn't appreciate the grind, the discipline. There is something in good men that really yearns for discipline and the harsh reality of head to head combat. VINCE LOMBARDI

-the link below is the best website I have found for Basketball Knowledge on the Internet. Read the Articles. 180 SHOOTER is a philosophy within it. It takes you through the steps to become a 180 SHOOTER, or a shooter that shoots 90% from the Free Throw Line, 50% from inside the 3 Point Line, and 40% from behind the 3 Point Line. If you can obtain these averages through practice, you will be one of the best shooters in the State.
