Food for thought.
What do we take away from these big stage tournaments? Girls Nike TOC, Torrey Pines Holiday Classic, City of Palms Classic, Les Schwab Invitational, The Classic @ Damien 2017, etc. We, as an evaluator, get a birds-eye look into how players (and programs) truly perform under the big lights – simulating a real world college environment. It allows Popscout to take a look at your game for more than a day. Identifying tendencies in your play, as well as habits that may be forming (whether bad or good) – all against other top notch performers.
It allows us to see the inner workings of your program from a ‘tactical’ standpoint. How are you handling in-game decisions? What strategies do you have in place – as a coaching staff – where you’re making the most out of situations, putting your pieces in the best places for them to perform. Or better yet, how do you work with the pieces that you have around your star players, to where you utilize their skill-sets to your teams’ advantage, molding them into a competitive unit, regardless of their caliber of play? And the list goes on.
Slippery slopes indeed but a great challenge for those who have a passion for the game and an understanding that it’s much more than euro steps and 360 dunks. So you think we’re just over there taking it all in with a grain of salt. Nope. We’re actively monitoring your play and mentally taking notes on how it’s getting done.
