Kobe Bryant's View of AAU Basketball

LOS ANGELES -- Kobe Bryant believes European basketball players are more skillful than American basketball players, and says it's a growing trend that can be blamed on the greed and coaching at the AAU level.
"I just think European players are just way more skillful," Bryant said Friday night after the Los Angeles Lakers109-106 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. "They are just taught the game the right way at an early age. ... They're more skillful. It's something we really have to fix. We really have to address that. We have to teach our kids to play the right way."

Galesburg in 1960's

Jim Wyman gave a tremendous introduction for Roger Coleman into the GHS Athletic Hall of Fame. I don't think I have heard a more impressive HOF speech than Jim's. The speech gives a great description of Roger but it is a sociology lesson on the role of radio, small towns and sports in the 1960's. It is MUST READING----

Roger Coleman Hall of Fame Speech

            It is an honor for me to represent the former employees of WGIL Radio who worked for Roger Coleman between 1954 and 1976 and to induct Roger Coleman into the Galesburg High School Hall of Fame as a “Friend GHS Athletics.”  This is a happy day for all of us who worked with Roger when he was general manager of WGIL.
            Roger Coleman is all Galesburg all the time.  He was born at St. Mary’s Hospital in Galesburg on November 27th, 1930.  His father, Haven Coleman, was the first basketball coach at Corpus Christi High School in Galesburg.  Haven Coleman was also an athletic director, who had worked at Wheaton College,Western Illinois University and at Hedding College in Abingdon until becoming sick with encepalitis and becoming an invalid.  Haven Coleman died in 1939.
            Roger loved two things in life:  sports and radio.  Although not a gifted athlete, he did run track for Galesburg High School and spent a lot of time watching the great football and basketball teams of C. C. Van Dyke and Gerald Phillips.

SYCAMORE – Sometimes, a team is just hot.
The Sterling girls basketball team faced such a team Tuesday night, as Sycamore knocked down eight 3-pointers in a 52-32 win.
“We just got beat by a great team today,” Sterling coach Ryan Vasquez said. “It’s a team that’s in sync right now. They were playing well together today, and they hit some big-time shots.
“When you’re knocking down shots like that, it’s a good thing on their part and a bad thing on ours we need to fix. Kudos to them.”

Two teams in our King Tourney...

University High School's girls basketball team capitalized on a number of early turnovers to race to a 17-2 first-quarter lead en route to a 63-40 Corn Belt Conference win over Prairie Central on Thursday night at Normal.
