Here is my view.  If you took the "second string" of Tatum and taught them how to handle the ball and play basketball like Ponder, Brock or Peaster that "second string" would beat Tatum eveytime.  No doubt Tatum is athletic and just wear people down, but is that basketball?

lol

I would bet the coach would want that routine to be as comfortable as possible. The kid shooting should do what feels the best for him or her.

Or what he thinks looks cool.  There is a difference.


Really??

so you agree?

Funny.

Was he doing some Harlem Globetrotter stuff? I doubt it. I've seen Tatum play and have never witnessed anything out of the ordinary. If you want to see an odd pre-shot free throw routine, go watch the Sutton girl from White Oak.

The Rockwell kids dad took a job transfer with his company to right outside of Tatum, so he is not a recruit. But as for kids from Longview and Marshall.............well who knows, I do.

Tatum vs Ponder, wow. On paper Ponder should win, but Tatum is very athletic and coach Carr will make adjustments, so you never know. I think it will go down to the wire with .....winning.

Bottom line.

Tatum is Tatum. They do what they do.

They don't try to be something they aren't. Look at the second half once they started slowing things down. Got sloppy.

Re: Free throws.... Wasn't typical from the line. Shot free throws for 45 minutes Wednesday at Baylor and again yesterday at a local area HS.

It should be a good game. Ponder will have to play better than they did against AP.

What's different about a girl taking a little time to get focused and a guy taking a little time to get focused?

It's not a Tatum thing.  It is a basketball thing

Good job today by Tatum! Didn't let an off shooting performance effect their defense!! Bring it home tomorrow

No disrespect to Bushland, but I'm not sure there is a single kid that would start for Ponder. Tomorrow's game should be a classic.

That makes zero sense! The same scenario can be used in reverse in try to get Ponder, Brock, and Peaster to full court press the whole game. Different styles for different programs. If you don't have the athletes you can't do what teams like Tatum and Kountze do, which is run the whole game!

Nope! My old coach always said no matter how bad of an offensive performance you have, if you play tough defense you'll give yourself a chance to win most of those games you're off...

Makes zero sense?  So you don't think an athletic team, that is just as fast as Tatum, and knew how to handle and pass the ball couldn't beat the press?  Heck Ponder will beat it tomorrow, just imagine what they could do if they were as athletic as Tatum.

Imagine ??

Since we are imagining dumb and pointless stuff let us imagine what Ponder would be like in football.
