: : : Post some stories, letís pass the time.
: : 4th quarter of a close, physical, back and forth game. Best player on a private school team goes down hard after badly twisting her ankle and she's screaming in pain on the court. Assistant coach, who resembles a grey whale, leaps off the bench and starts screaming at her...YOU'RE NOT HURT!!! YOU'RE NOT HURT! GET YOUR WEAK ASS OFF THE COURT AND GO PLAY! Girl had to be carried off the court. It's truely amazing that the assistant coach is still employed.
: West Torrance versus North Torrance double overtime game. Truly an amazing game.
A freshmen game where team was behind by one point with 8 seconds left when it forced opponent to throw ball out of bounds. Called time out. Reviewed out of bounds play we practiced. Ran it correctly and one of our players made basket with little time remaining. We lost though when new freshmen players ran onto court thinking game was over. Referee correctly called a technical foul and said to put 1.6 seconds back on the clock. They made both free throws to win the game. They threw ball into their player and clock expired. My fault. During time out I should have reminded players not to go on the court until game is over and they hear buzzer. After that during a game in the season a few times I said everyone run on the court and players replied "we only leave our bench if you ask us to or if there is an emergency." We learned a lesson that day to work on the challenge and also the next challenge that could happen as a result of that play.
