VH Basketball - 3rd Grade Basketball

 Weekly Predictions  Current Predictions Record: 58% (W 25 - L 18)

 BobCats-Evans |  Mark Salmon - Director of Player Development
Coach Salmon brings 47 years of hands on in-depth basketball knowledge. No assistant in the league brings more to the table, not to mention the wealth of knowledge available to him from his BETTER half. There is much more to this coach than softball knowledge and his assistance in player development could just be the final COG needed for a BobCats' championship run. When asked to comment on his expectations for the year, Coach Salmon stated, "Well, it has to be better than last year, maybe this year I can develop the kids so they know that they don't wear gloves and there are no bases in this game...........last year's coach............well, I'm hesitant to comment, but he insisted on signaling in the plays, with indicators and decoys and such.......the only play that made any sense at all was the "steal" sign. We had 3 players ejected last year for "hit and run" when they slugged the other team and took off running!"

Leading up to the Magic/Cherry vs Celtics/Dinga game, the Celtics went to a Cherry Picking Farm, walked through the fields and learned all they could about Cherry.  Afterwards, they learned to eat up every Cherry they can find and learned to leave nothing on the plate.
