Grit. Grind. Toughness.
Grit. Grind. Toughness. These words are always associcated with defense. If they become who you are on the floor, it will be hard for your coach to take you off. Just what is Grit, you ask? It's a look in your eye. A tension in your stance. A bounce in your step. Grind? It's never giving up. It's sprinting the floor. It's finishing every possession. And Toughness? Defelections. Floor burns. Charges. I've often wondered if playing with these qualities is a skill that can be taught. I sure hope so. Day 3 of STBB Camp we did our best to teach it.
