Something I have noticed in my years of coaching is that this time of year teams are either getting better or they are fading into the background. I don’t think any team stays the same. Furthermore, I do not think it has much, if anything, to do with a team’s record. I believe it’s a choice by the players in the program. From what I have seen, if all things are relatively equal, the teams that WANT to keep working at it are the ones that are going to create great memories from here on out. Would love to hear thoughts from the coaching community.
