You have to be READY to succeed.


Here are some thoughts on being "ready." As a player, are you ready to play when the ball is tipped off. As a player on the bench, are you ready when your name is called. As a team, in a close game, when circumstances arrive, are you ready to win the game. As coaches, are we ready for all the challenges that come our way -- dealing with players, practice and game situations, adversity, and yes, even success. A big part of excellence is being "ready" for it.
