A UConn Coaching Profile

an article on UConn assistant Karl Hobbs,
who Jim Calhoun says is the best
in the country at developing guards. Next up for Hobbs is Taliek Brown,
and he's got some things to learn, though he is talented. We got to sit under
the basket and watch when he played in Raleigh, and while he's powerful and
fast, he wastes a lot of energy trying to pound the ball down under the basket.
The first thing he has to learn is to give the ball up sooner. The second thing
he has to learn is to not waste energy. He could get just as much done
much more efficiently. He would benefit from watching Chris Duhon and
Andre Barrett, both of whom manage to get where they are going - and to get the
ball where it needs to be - with much less energy.
