Defense is the key

Glide - Pleasure

More, more, more defense. I always told my teams to say, "I love defense!" You have to have the will to play defense. Defense wins chips! All facts. I wrote an earlier blog talking about defense, but now I decided to write another blog about my team's defense, I'm sure I'll do more  "defense" blogs in the near future. The sense of urgency, communication and point communication on defense continue to be key for the Hoyas. This is the mark of a great team in the making that is truly destined for greatness., but first and foremost the Hoyas know it's all about staying focused and taking things one game at a time.

“I would tell players to relax and never think about what’s at stake. Just think about the basketball game. If you start to think about who is going to win the championship, you’ve lost your focus.” - Michael Jordan
