Conference season is upon us and league races will be tipping off nation wide this week. The New Year has begun and every team in a sense gets to start fresh with a 0-0 record and in the hunt for a conference championship! The opportunity to represent your school and compete against your conference rivals week in and week out is a terrific challenge! The race to cutting down the nets will be fierce and intense in every league as coaches and players alike are in hopes of winning a championship ring! The roller coaster journey is a marathon rather than a sprint but those who perform the best will find themselves in the greatest spectacle in sports come March, the NCAA Tournament! Have fun and enjoy the ride as your favorite ball club tries to punch their ticket to March Madness!
The last, first practice of the year is a special thing for a Senior! It is a day of excitement; but also, a day of alarm that this is the last go around as a college basketball player! A day that you can’t wait to get started yet, one that makes you realize you have started your last long grueling stretch of practice where you beat up on your body and teammates for several weeks before you ever get to let your built up passion and new improved game from the year before out on an actual opponent!
