Two days of practice down, eight to go

By Khaliq Spicer
Sophomore, Forward

On Monday, we opened practice to get ready for our trip to the Bahamas later this month. It was great to get started again and be on the floor with all of my teammates and coaches.

Coach Senderoff has us going through two-a-days right now. In the morning, we either lift weights or have a little shootaround to get shots up. Then we come back for practice at night.

We ‘ve worked a lot on our defense so far, really focusing on becoming better individual defenders. We get points for things we doing different things defensively, like taking a charge, and the coaches made a chart to track each of us. They say defense wins championships, and that is our goal for this season.

Today is our day off, but most of the guys came to the M.A.C. Center to get some shots up. I worked on shooting free throws and little hooks shots.

We get back to two-a-days on Thursday and Friday and then just weights on Saturday before repeating it again next week. I love playing and am ready to get back out there tomorrow.
