A couple of weeks ago, I interviewed University of Southern Miss' Assistant Coach, Brooks Donald (NOW HEAD COACH OF MCNEESE STATE). I asked her what skill girls players lacked the most when they arrived at college. She stated, "Knowledge of the game. In this day and age, there are more athletes that advance to the next level than knowledgable, skilled basketball players. I think girls don't watch the game enough. Watching basketball is like studying. Watching basketball really enhances your knowledge of the game."
I am here in Duluth, GA for the SEC Women's Basketball Tournament.. THIS IS DEFINITELY A PLACE TO STUDY BASKETBALL. Imagine a weekend of watching Candace Parker of Tennessee, Alliesha Easley and Armintie Price of Ole Miss, Sylvia Fowles of LSU and Tasha Humphrey of Georgia. You get to learn from the top players in the nation and maybe get you an autograph or two.
The SEC Tournament is not the only conference tournament you can study basketball and players. You have the ACC, Conference USA, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Mountain West, etc. There are plenty of conferences for you to choose from.
Imagine how much more your game will develop and how much more you will be inspired to play basketball after attending a basketball conference. If you can only get to one game, that is better than not attending at all.
