There was a time when Coach Don Brown sent his Knoxville Lady Panthers onto the court as much as possible. Over time, Brown has learned that “more” isn’t always “better.”
“I used to think that we should be out there every second possible when we could be in front of the college coaches,” Brown said. “Eventually, I found out that might not be the best thing for us. Our kids play very hard, and in the past we would start out great, but then there would be injuries and fatigue, and we wouldn’t be playing very well at the end.
“Now we try to pick and choose the best events because we want to give our kids an opportunity to play their best every time they are in front of college coaches. It works best for us if we pick out the events that are loaded with college coaches, and loaded with talent.”
One of those events will be the 2015 Nashville Tournament of Champions. The Nashville event is being organized by the staff from the All Star Girls Report, and it will be held July 10-13. A national level field will be competing in the HoopTown venue.
“We have a young group this year because we lost several Division I kids from last year’s team,” Brown said. “They have progressed throughout the spring, and we’re looking forward to July. I really think we are going to turn a lot of heads in July.”
