- Reaction score
I agree that they are playing for much bigger goals then just beating LIU, and being demanding and accountable of yourself and teamates is a good thing. I didn't dislike that she was fired up or coaching hard in the least. Just pace yourself and save some of that for practice. Probably all of just part of getting to know the new staff. My only point was pace yourself, and take the time to celebrate the good with the bad. You can be critical, and teaching of the bad, but there is nothing wrong with showing emotion and celebrating the good also in game. I learned when I was younger that being to critical and hyper reactive in game made players reflect all the negative and not the good they were doing also. I realize they have a long ways to go and a short time to get there against a team like UCONN. It just takes court time for a new staff and team to gel. Yesterday was a good start. It was fun to see them hit so many shots, and energy was very good. Coach P has been coaching a lot longer and forgotten more than I know, all I was saying is take time to enjoy the journey, everyone is new and getting used to this style and play. This staff is here for good reasons, organization and change are starting and showing effects.I disagree. I like that coach P was fired up. The team had way too many turnovers. I don’t think this team is playing for wins over LIU, as I assume they have tournament goals. She is not coaching to make fans, she is coaching to win games. I already like that.
