Last night I had the pleasure of working out the 14U Illinois Select boys team in Rolling Meadows, IL. We had a great 1.5 hour workout. The kids worked extremely hard and I could see in their eyes the passion that some of them had for the game. Ray Glassman, the director of Illinois Select, is doing things the right way. He would jump in some of the drills and offer teaching points, which were right on point. Simple teaching points like “Play the Ball. See Your Man” Simple and short. The Coach Eastman way! If you get a chance to play for him and do not take advantage of it you will be missing out on a great opportunity!
Ray is also running the President’s Day Hoop Prospects showcase at the Lake Barrington Fieldhouse. For more information check out the website here. I will be running the skills sessions along with 3 Time NBA World Champion, Dickey Simpkings. Where do you rank? Come find out!
