: : : Watching EYBL this morning.
: : : Swish is bad. No two ways around it.
: : : Storm guard DeJesus is nice. They seem to lack a go to scorer. But better overall first impression than I thought for this year's squad.
: : : WCP about to start playing, as well as Stars.
: : : Many of these girls have horrible shooting form. It's hard to watch at times. And everyone presses than falls back into a crappy zone. It would be interesting to see if anyone actually has the ability and intelligence to play anything else.
: : So your upset others are playing zone which by your account is best defense against poor shooting. You say they can't shoot or have bad form. Why play where they can beat you off the dribble. Here is a thought instead of playing all these games maybe the players need to just work on their fundamentals and shoot and lift in the off season. If they had an off season.
: No one teaches defense in club for the most part, outside of various traps, presses, and general zones.
: As far as the last post, I'm not sure what that person is saying but I suppose from a simplistic standpoint, zone would be a option for "poor" shooting, but there is much more that goes into defense than those kinds of generalisations. I would play man always if I felt my team had the ability to do so, even against bad shooters. Better man to man box out responsibilities allowing quicker transition, and minimizing loss of rebounds from long bounces off of poor shots.
: California teams this year are not expected to be elite level on the circuit, outside of Cal Stars. We'll see if anyone proves this sentiment incorrect.
WCP - lost
Sparks - lost
Swish - lost
Storm - won
Stars - won big
Another round later
