The Basketball Podcast: E09 with Jake Scott on a Games Approach

RELEASE DATE : 17/10/2018

He also spent three seasons as an assistant coach at the Rochester Institute of Technology, and as a graduate assistant coach at Division I Virginia Commonwealth University.

Podcast Quotes

“We need to keep getting our skill work in but also, basically, make practice more fun.”

Q: “How often are you stopping live practice?”
A: “Every time we need to . . You need to have an agreement with your players that you can coach them.”

“Ultimately, for this to be successful I can’t have me be the leader, solely. I need my players to lead each other; I need my players to follow each other.”

“The BDT concept is really a mix of things together . . instead of training ball handling in isolation, then shooting in isolation, we can mix it all together at once.”

“When I teach a new play, no matter how complex it is, we will do it 5-on-5 . . for me to develop decision making, I need to have defense present.”

“Whatever style you play there are going to be structured and unstructured moments . . so what I believe in is giving them a structure and, within that structure, they get freedom of decision making.”

“Basically, in every situation for the player with the ball the goal is to score. If they can’t score we hope that they drew help. And if they drew help, then we’re in reaction.”

“Within our practices, we teach a ton . . but it’s all in the context of the game.”

“My goal is to improve all my players . . but they won’t improve without feedback . . they have to be willing to accept it and be willing to apply it and be willing to receive it directly in the context [of the practice].”

“When we scrimmage more in practice and did this games approach . . I thought the films from practice were just as beneficial as real games because of how much action we were getting.”

“After you get to a certain point in the season, the two areas [to focus on] are game prep and special situations . .”

“We don’t need to be doing the same drills at the end of the year that we’re doing at the beginning of the year. And if we are, then we know we’re just wasting time . . Your job as a coach is to constantly add layers of challenge to those drills.”

“I find we spend less time on scouting reports . . because you’re spending so much time on each situation within the games context.”

“We love this game for a reason so we’ve got make sure we’re teaching it that way.”

“A lot of coaches, frivolously, interpret it as just rolling out the balls . . but it’s not. And that’s where I keep coming back to it — stop it and coach them . . I stop and coach more than I would in a drill.”

However, dark colours like these grey bathroom walls create an intimate feel (which is just what you want in a tiny bathroom). In this space bright books, mirrors and decorations break up the solid blocks of colour and light marble slabs break it up to prevent the room from feeling stifling. So, it’s no surprise that bathrooms are the most commonly remodeled room of the house! We’ve scoured Instagram for the most impressive bathroom renovation projects — including before and after images — for your remodeling inspiration. Use battery-powered LED wax pillars to create a candlelight effect without the fire hazard. Install salvaged wall candle sconces to hold them and give your bathroom instant ambiance.

Geschichte Spieldauer beliebig Roulette wird in allen Spielbanken rund um den Globus gespielt und die rollende Kugel übt seit jeher einen ungeahnten Reiz auf die Spieler aus. Es handelt sich dabei um ein reines Glücksspiel, dessen Verlauf sich nicht beeinflussen lässt. Jeder muss vor der Spielrunde seinen Einsatz tätigen und raten, auf welchem Feld der Roulettescheibe die Kugel wohl liegen bleibt. Beim Familienspiel Deluxe Roulette ist das nicht großartig anders. Ein Viertel der Croupiers sind Frauen, und auch im Automatenspiel sind sie inzwischen tätig. Ein emanzipatorischer Blick hinter das goldene Gitter der Spielbank.
