If you are an underdog, a top seed or a middle of the pack team in the seedings in order to win a Maine High School Tournament youn are going to have to win 3 or 4 games depending if you had to win a prelim game to make the final 8.
Of those four games the law of averages says you are going to have one bad shooting night or just have a bad floor game with lots of turnovers.. You have got to be able to survive that game. The oLd adage better to play poor and win, then toi play great and lose in a one and done situation.
First, be prepared to to have good shot selection on a poor shooting night.Make sure you can play in the half-court offensively with patience as at all levels high school, college to the Pros. good teams will make you play in the half-court.
Rely on your defense as your bread and butter, as there is no need to be off on your defensive game. Defense is nothing more “THAN THE DESIRE TO PERSPIRE”.
YOU HAVE TO RELY ON YOUR DEFENSE, MAKING GOOD BASKETBALL DECISIONS AND GOOD SHOT SELECTION IN ORDER TO WIN A TOURNAMENT.
