Free Throw Shooting

February 14, 2014
By

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out why Purdue is struggling to win basketball games.  I suffered through a recent game in which they were 3 for 10 in one overtime period.  It took an amazing amount of patience on the part of Coach Painter to stay with the kids he wanted on...

Jim Boeheim of Syracuse recently won his 900th ball game all at the same school.  One other person has accomplished this feat, and he is Mike Kryzewski of Duke.  Mike, however, won 73 games at Army before going to Duke.  While at Duke, Mike had Bob Knight on the same staff with him at...

Kids and Exercise

February 12, 2014
By

I wonder if any person under 16 years of age has ever done one of the following things as a kid growing up.  Have you seen your young child jumping rope, playing hopscotch, riding their bike, playing games like tag or hide and seek?  I know the very young might do hide and seek, but...

Senior Burnout

February 11, 2014
By

When you start to read this, you will think that I am just repeating an earlier blog.  However, I thought about this and I think I have a little more insight into what is going on.  I still do not agree with a senior who does not compete in a spring sport that they...

Swimming

February 10, 2014
By

At a recent boys’ basketball game at BHS, the senior swimmers at Batesville High School were recognized.  There were 6 young men and 1 young lady in this group.  It was quite an impressive resume for these swimmers.  I think all but one of the boys has been a state qualifier, and Matt Weiler...

More Sports Terms

February 7, 2014
By

About 20 or so years ago, sportscasters started to use terms like double double, triple double, and quadruple double in basketball.  A double double refers to the situation where a player has double-figure results in scoring, rebounding and/or assists and/or blocked shots and/or steals.  The triple double moniker puts three of these possibilities together.  The quadruple...

Watching the Olympics

February 6, 2014
By

I will be watching the Olympics like a lot of you.  Wouldn’t it be nice if all we had to worry about was how good our American athletes would do?  Like everything else happening on a world stage, we have to worry whether some zealot is lying in wait to make a statement for...

Local Olympian

February 5, 2014
By

By now you have probably heard that former Hidden Valley Lake resident, Nick Goepper, has qualified for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.  He is the top participant in an event called skiing slopestyle.  Like so many of the new Olympic events this is really acrobatics on a ski slope.  To classify this event...

Coaching Styles

February 4, 2014
By

Several times in the past, I have written articles about the different styles of coaching that are effective.  I believe that the best asset any coach can have is his/her ability to sell their players on what they want them to do.  Too many young coaches try to take what has been effective for...

Reds Caravan Revisited

February 3, 2014
By

As usual, it was a lot of fun to MC the Reds Caravan when they were in Batesville.  I was really impressed with Brayan Pena, the new catcher for the Reds.  The young man is a native of Cuba and a countryman of Reds relief pitcher, Chapman.  The soft-spoken catcher was friendly and was a...
