IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (1-22-18)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
Winning in team sports requires constant practice to make sure that every player is in tune with what is best for the entire team. This is very important, but believing this will transpire into victories is just as important.
Big Ten basketball leader Ohio State started the conference with eight straight wins, none more important than beating #1 Michigan State on the road. OSU player Jae’Sean Tate spoke for his team after that big win.
“We all knew we could do it. And that’s where it all started. You can’t go into a game against a team like Michigan State not believing that it’s possible to win. I think that’s the biggest factor of us winning tonight, just the belief that we could do it.”
Preparation will help insure that you have a chance to win any game on any given night. However, truly believing that you can win is what separates big wins from tough losses!
