Vegas Champs Again!

The "Super 7!" What a great week in Las Vegas for the AAU West Coast Championships July 22-25. Big Sky Hoops once again won the event as they had done in 2008. The difference this year was no one came close to challenging these Montana girls. This was truly the finest team I have ever coached!

We beat 4 metropolitan teams by sharing the ball and puting on a defensive clinic. We kept people out of the lane, talked and helped. We were relentless rebounders, hustled and executed. I was so proud of our unselfishness on the offensive end. This team didn't care who got the glory...for a group of girls made up of kids from across the state and with only four practices under their belt, this was truly a TEAM in every sense of the word. I received more compliments from people, many complete strangers on how hard our team played and shared the ball. This was encouraged by me but embraced by the players. What a terrific group of young ladies...players and people!

I truly enjoyed my time with these girls during our three tournaments together. Great basketball, great people and some solid, Vegas shows and LeBron James:)

Good luck and God bless you girls during your senior year and into your college career...I'll be watching!!
