PostSubject: Big Win   Tue Jul 29, 2014 11:09 am

In case you have been living under a rock or have been electronically disconnected from the world, the U17 boys fired up the 3 pointer and downed BC in the quarter finals last night at Nationals. Electric atmosphere in the gym/Sauna (hot day in Edmonton). Great bunch of athletes/competitors and glad I had the privilege to be in the gym to watch it.

Grudge match against Ontario in the semi-final play this evening at 9 pm ADT. NB downed Ontario in the round robin play so should be a great game! Streamed live (http://www.sportscanada.tv/canadabasketball/)

U15 boys and U15 girls are both trying to win today in the consolation side of the bracket and get to the fifth place game and improve their placement from last year. U17 girls play their final game today for the 9th and 10th seeding.

I would be interested in hearing from folks who attended the games in person, I watched several u 17 games via streaming but difficult to get a feel for what's happening .
Certainly want to thank all volunteers, coaches, managers and parents, huge commitment.

Games at Nationals were very solid showing for NB teams. Each team was competitive in every game they played. Take aways:

1) When NB players are focused, motivated and well coached they can defend any team in the country. NB teams had more discipline, rotations and defensive accountability then any team I saw. Played as little zone as anyone on the u17 boys side and finished top 4. All 4 teams relied on their defense to keep them in games or win them games on given days.

2) NB has a a smaller margin for error. Their are no easy hoops for NB or bonus plays for NB. Larger provinces have athletes and players who can just rise up and make a shot or play out of very little. Then can steal a put back or end up with extra points on the O boards. NB has to battle to limit these opportunities. The closest NB gets to extra points is looks at knock down shots when d breaks down and the foul line. If they do not shoot well or knock down free throws at a high rate then they can be in games but struggle to win them. Defensively when rotations or boxouts breakdown or NB goes off plan they do not have the athletes to cover for mistakes. Those possessions generally cost us.

3) Recovery continues to be a huge factor. Early in the week NB teams can out work and out execute, as the week wears on we do not have athletes and or great shooters to rely on that other teams have when elements break down. The ability for NB kids to cope with conditions, recover and battle at a high level of energy and focus everyday is huge. NB kids must be more competitive, more disciplined, more motivated and communicative then their opponents almost everyday out. NB doesn't get a bad day, bad game or bad quarter. As a group their fitness, toughness and healthy habits to recover must be better collectively not just pockets of individuals. The coaches made a concerted effort this past week vs hostile environmental conditions, dietary concerns and physically demanding schedules to help kids recover. There are still players coming into NB experience and nationals that do not have the experience in mental and physical training year round that they need. More importantly they do not take care of themselves properly.

4) NB coaches did a great job of planning and prepping kids to put them in situations to win at game time. There was no game that I watched where some better shooting or consistent execution over 40 minutes couldn't have allowed the game to be winnable. Saw very few teams and coaches making the game to game and in game adjustments that NB teams made. Most other provinces just went out and tried to shoot better, execute their stuff sharper and work harder.

5) U17 boys as an entire pool was as wide open top to bottom as its every been. U15 and u17 girls had 6+ teams all capable of competing for a medal on a given night. u15 boys top couple of teams clearly athletically at different level then the rest of the field but for the most again competitive top to bottom.

I would agree with what coach DJR has posted regarding the recent national championships with a few other comments.

I thought the overall flow of the girls games was very poor. It seemed like there was a whistle every 5 seconds, zero flow to the game. I watched most of the U17 girls games and a number of the U15 games and the amount of whistles was mind boggling. There were comments posted on line( some from individuals who have limited knowledge of the game) saying it was odd how many times the game was stopped. The U17 girls played 5 games, that's 20 quarters of bball and they were in a penalty situation in all 20 quarters with a number of them happening prior to the 5 min mark. I am not sure why this is happening but my suspicion is that you have officials at these tournament who know they are being evaluated and feel they need to get air in the whistle. And at the U17 level you add a third official and it seems like you are at a Fox 40 convention. It also seemed that the game was officiated very differently between the guys and girls. It was like they think the girls are going to break apart if they get hit. "Just let hem play" was heard numerous times.

Overall I would say the tournament was a success. The venue was awesome and having all divisions at the same location certainly made for some exciting games with lots of fans around!
