S-W Jamboree

Girls coach David King gave his club mixed reviews for its performance at the jamboree.

“We came out with first-game jitters and extra adrenaline,” he said. “This created a rushed and panicked shooting night. Many shots had too much power, as did our passes. We struggled to knock down shots and free throws.”

Turnovers and fouls were other concerns, he said.

The Wolves’ defense was strong at times, King said, adding, “We have been working on some new things defensively and saw some flashes of what it can do to create turnovers.

However, there were occasions when the defense “broke down for easy shots and scores,” King said.

“Offensively we have been looking to push the ball more, and, overall, we did that well,” he said. “We will work on court vision to help improve this area.”

King expects his team to settle down now that the “first-game nerves are out of the way.”
