Welcome! As a coach, I wanted to share information about my basketball interests. The reason for choosing "Massey Basketball" is to make sure people understand this is not an official blog of Galesburg HS. The blog is designed to provide information about the Streaks and basketball, motivation, and anything that interests me.
