Let the Games Begin
It was November 6, 1998, twenty months since I had played in a real basketball game, and that had been as a high school senior. Coach Knight told the team before our opener with Seton Hall how “important it was to get our season started off well,” and that we must play with good “balance and position” if we were going to begin the season with two victories (the second matchup would be the next day against South Carolina, both games part of the National Association of Basketball Coaches Classic). Coach had us write in our red notebooks the following information to remember as we neared that first game:
1. Remember to stick to our defensive rules.
2. Play the passing lanes on defense.
3. Stay above our man on defense.
4. Don’t allow ball handlers to split us on the perimeter.
5. Have good low, short recoveries on defense with no over-commitments.
