Hope everyone here had a great week! I know I did! Davidson Wildcats made the NCAA tournament by defeating the Western Carolina Catamounts by 2 in double O.T. I’m very proud of the guys and I’m expecting great things from them in the big dance! The remaining minutes of the game illustrated what Davidson basketball was all about. Poise and toughness! Coach McKillop’s philosophy, ‘help somebody, help yourself’ was in full effect! Good luck to the Wildcats next week!
My management classes are also going well. We have about 3 weeks left of school and in another three we have our final exams. It’s incredible how fast this semester passed by. People say time passes the fastest when you’re having fun. I guess they’re right! I’ve been spending a lot of time on my literature review for my thesis. It’s taking up a lot of my time, but I’m sure that once it’s over with, it’ll be a great feeling!
I coached at the National School once again this week. My four groups are getting better each time I see them. Similarly to the past weeks, we spent the majority of our time working on basics. It was finally time for the girls to learn how to make a proper layup. I remember when I was 12 that making a layup with the appropriate footwork was a real challenge! My goal is to have them play basic 3 on 3 games with the proper technique by end of April!
We won our last regular season game last week against Portlaise. It was an ugly game even though we won by 25 points. Conall, Paul and Tim played great at various instances! Team is meshing really well. Tonight is our first playoff game against Kilkenny! The team is pumped and we’re looking forward to the game. We had a great week of practice and we’re ready to play tonight!
We’ll talk again next week!
