Take a look at this email correspondence between Dena Evans, owner of PGC Basketball, and a PGC grad who she corresponds with through the year. As many players (and parents) have these types of concerns during a season, we thought Dena’s response will benefit everyone in our PGC community. Coaches, we recommend you share this with your entire team in order to pro-actively address this common issue.

“Players under pressure revert back to their deeply held habits”. In a big game, against tough defense you will see what type of player you are. You will see what your habits are. Every time I step into a gym almost every athlete looks the same; a little out of control, a little weak with the ball, makes a few too many mistakes, and hardly ever has a plan.
This is the touching story of two members of our PGC family. Ieshia Small is a PGC grad who is one of the top high school players in the nation. Coach Kimberly Davis Powell is a long-time PGC supporter who runs one of the top Nike girls basketball programs in the country. This is a story of tragic loss and adversity, but also a story of love & hope.
Comer was the conductor of the face moving train that was the FGCU offense. He orchestrated two masterpiece games as a play maker that should be emulated by young point guards everywhere. His ability to create plays in all situations was THE difference for Florida Gulf Coast. Comer creates in four primary ways as a point guard and when he is at his best, like he was the first weekend, all four are clicking on all cylinders.
The first time I played in a professional basketball game in Greece I was shocked by the speed. I was not shocked by the speed of the players running up and down the court or by the quickness of the guards, but I was shocked by the speed of the ball. Nothing in my basketball training had prepared me to for the speed of the ball movement. The biggest difference between youth basketball, high school, college and professional basketball is the speed of the passing.
