: : : : Not bashing or anything just a serious question. Has OC basketball really fallen off this far? I've seen Mater Dei, Brea, Troy and a few other teams a number of times now and the quality of play is significantly down from recent years.
: : Basketball is most definitely not what it used to be. Although there are some really great players in OC, not sure those same players would have made it in back in the day. Problem is youth basketball... even though it has significantly increased over the last 10 years, the quality of players are not what they used to be! A lot of players are also dual sport athletes meaning they are not putting in enough work in one sport to be ELITE in said sport!
: Maybe fundamentals should be taught in travel ball instead of run and gun and mugging on defense
Travel ball is not a time for fundamentals, It's for a quick paced game and players that aren't ready for that type of play shouldn't be exposed to those conditions.
