24 Mar March 24 – The End of Ball Screens (not how it sounds)
No, we are not looking to end ball screens! We just think maybe you should consider how you are using them and what you hope to get out of them, and this is the end of the series.
Before we get into our last day of our series on Ball Screens, we need to mention some important members of the Better Basketball family.
Coach TJ Rosene and the Emmanuel College Lions (you have seen them in our Read & React Clinics and Videos!) are playing in the NAIA Fab Four tonight (March 24th) at 9pm ET against MidAmerica Nazarene.
The Lions are the first No. 8 seed to make the Fab Four since 2009 and are the 2nd team in the last 3 years to represent the Southern States Athletic Conference in the semifinals since Shorter (another Read & React team) in 2012.
You can watch this great Read & React team play live online through the NAIA by clicking here and signing up. You can watch both semifinal games for one price.
Good luck, gentlemen. We are proud of you!
P.S. If you are interested in some of the resources Coach Rosene has provided the Tribe over the years, there is a great list here.
