The Basketball Podcast: EP42 Terry Fowler on Changing the Way You Practice

RELEASE DATE : 22/05/2019

In this week’s basketball coaching conversation, South Alabama head women’s basketball coach Terry Fowler joins the podcast to discuss changing the way you practice and play. Coach Fowler has changed from a slower paced offense, to a faster higher possession offense. He has also moved from a more traditional practice style to a games based approach to coaching.

Fowler will enter his 20th season as a head coach during the 2018-19 season and has completely changed the culture at South Alabama as he has guided the program to its first postseason appearance in over a decade. Coach Fowler became the coach at South Alabama in 2013 after great success at North Alabama, including two NCAA Division II Tournament appearances in the previous three years before becoming the coach at South Alabama.

While at South Alabama, Fowler has coached five all-Sun Belt Conference selections: The team has consistently improved and is competing for top spot in the conference. Under Fowler, South Alabama has also registered a number of Power 5 victories having beaten Alabama and North Carolina.


“I’m a defensive-minded coach and we just really needed to do some different things offensively . . we’re playing faster in transition and we’re playing faster in the half-court as well.”

[On using 3v3 FIBA game in practice] “That’s really increased our pace of play but more importantly it’s increased our ability to make some better decisions on the floor.”

“What [playing 3v3 with a shot clock] has also done is forced our players to make a second action . . it’s been great to have the consecutive actions and I think those are the hardest to guard.”

“It’s their [the players’] program and it’s their game and it’s their energy . . we want them to have ownership and when they do that things get corrected a lot easier.”

“The more you can try to get some more unstructured opportunities . . those are the things that are hard to defend.”

“As we’ve gone to this [games] approach, the line has been when do we stop play?”

“It starts with asking questions? . . Now we try to recreate the situation . . and then we may try to come back and recreate it at full speed . . “

“One of the things I want to work on: shot selection . [we ask] how did you feel about that shot? Is that a shot we work on? Is that a shot you work on? I need players when they’re open to have . . confidence.”

“It really does come down to the decision . . now I’m playing with my head up, my eyes up and I actually see the cue that tells me what to do which is what the defense does.”

“If you can make better decisions, you can become a better basketball player.”

“That’s the most important thing is for them to learn and then they can take it to the next step. It’s about teaching the game and understanding the game. And anytime you’re on air, it’s just not real.”

“It was difficult at first . . but it has allowed for our players to have more freedom . . you lose some of that control as a coach . . you don’t have that control on game day so you may as well practice it in practice.”

“It’s allowed me to be a little more free on game day . . we’re getting about an extra 20, 22 possessions a game . . there’s a little more margin for error, but there’s also a lot more opportunities to score to make up for those [errors].”

[On using a games approach] “It’s allowed us to coach offense and defense at the same time . . our players enjoy it . . it’s an easier way to teach . . because it’s allowed our players to read and react to the game versus us dictating the entire practice.”

  1. Finally, coming to the essential elements, the kitchen cabinetry is one of the most significant aspects of the kitchen that affects the total budget of your kitchen remodeling project. These installations can cost you around $2000 to $8000, excluding the material cost. Kitchen remodels continue growing in popularity. For one reason, they often give a huge boost to home resale value. In 2019, a $66,000 kitchen remodel recouped an average of 62% of the cost upon the sale of the house. A smaller $22,000 remodel netted an average return of 80%. If you’re hiring us, we’ll look after the complete team of professionals required to complete the project. If not, then you may have a series of invoices from various professionals to cover the labour costs, including: Kitchen cabinet installation costs an average of $2,000 to $8,000, with the products themselves ranging from $75 to $1,500 per linear foot. Kitchen cabinets prices vary depending on whether you opt for custom or stock products, and your project price will also depend on whether you update them rather than replace them.

  2. Ici, nous te conseillons d’adopter la méthode de l’entonnoir. Tu dois commencer par parler de l’histoire de l’entreprise, de son secteur d’activité ainsi que de son développement jusqu’à aujourd’hui. Ensuite, tu peux aborder le cadre de ton stage et des missions qui t’ont été confiées. Créée en 1996, l’association d’arts plastiques a tenu récemment son assemblée générale sur son site de l’ancienne école des Chauvauds… Votre travail doit nécessairement être envoyé à votre maître de stage. A n’en pas douter, il consultera le sommaire de votre rapport de stage pour commencer sa lecture par les remerciements : il faut donc leur apporter un soin tout particulier ! En effet, garder de bons rapports avec votre équipe de stage peut être utile pour la suite de votre parcours professionnel, lorsqu’il vous faudra activer votre réseau et ou demander des recommandations. https://flutter-net.com/community/profile/daviskeisler589/ Δdocument.getElementById( “ak_js_1” ).setAttribute( “value”, ( new Date() ).getTime() ); © 2022 SlidePlayer.fr Inc.

Autre petit point d’attention : Il faut éviter de « plaquer » des contextes s’ils ne sont pas mobilisés directement dans les étapes de l’analyse du document. En effet, il ne s’agit pas pour toi de réaliser une dissertation, une interprétation qui s’affranchirait d’une analyse méthodique du document présenté. Le document n’est pas qu’un prétexte ou une illustration, il faut toujours partir de l’image ! Méthodologie : Analyser et comprendre des documents Les corrections d’analyses de documents couvrent les différentes appellations de l’épreuves d’étude critique de document d’Histoire au fil des réformes. Certaines corrections émanent d’enseignants et d’autres d’élèves: elles sont alors signalées comme telles et permettent d’avoir un exemple de devoirs de qualité.
