    Well, another year and another disappointing season. What's the problem?

    I don't even follow volunteer basketball but I saw them play twice this year and there was talent there. They just seemed very undisciplined to me.

    It always starts with your feeder programs as well. Look at Sullivan East. You have Mary Hughes who produces most of their good players and you have a great middle school coach and one of the best teachers in the game Mark Mason. Hampton is another prime example. Small school competes with good aaa and AA schools year in and year out. They always have a very good feeder program that gets their kids ready for high school. I think two of the most important things in basketball till this day is setting a standard for your team and holding them accountable year in and year out to the highest extent. And the second thing is player development. I see so many kids these days who you go watch and they haven't gotten any better skill wise from the time they was a freshman till the time they graduate and a lot of that comes with how much time you put in your game from the time March ends until the time November rolls around. Not pick up a basketball in November and hope that it falls into place. Bottom line is you have very small schools like Cloudland and Hampton who compete with the best year in and year out in this area and to be truthful probably have less talent to chose from than Volunteer does. They just do a good job of taking what they have and make it work.
