In the words of Coach Norman Dale, from the movie the “HOOSIERS” (1986)
“There’s a tradition in tournement play — not to talk about the next step until you’ve climbed the one infront of you. I’m sure going to the state finals is beyond your wildest dreams, so let’s just keep it right there.
Forget about the crowds, the size of the school, their fancy uniforms, and remember what got you here. Focas on the fundementals that we’ve gone over time and time again.
And most important, don’t get caught up in thinking about winning or losing the game. If you put your effort anf potential into playing to your potential, to be the best that you can be, I don’t care what the scoreboard says at the end of the game, in my book we’re gonna be winners.”
