Vermillion Basketball Coach McDonald on Creative Play

Vermilion_Community_CollegeHead Basketball Coach Paul McDonald of Vermillion Community College will be joining Stephen McCarthy of the The McCarthy Project to discuss one of the biggest trends recently is athletes attempting to gain perfection running a certain “xyz” system (i.e. robotic) and therefore, not seeing the whole picture or play and the effects of this type of player on how the game is played.  Secondly, we will talk about the different types of drills or tasks you can do to help an athlete flow based on what he sees, rather than just doing it perfect.

For the complete interview, visit The McCarthy Project on Blog Talk Radio.
