Our program produces a discipline, up-tempo brand of basketball.  Each player will develop the attitude of sacrificing himself to free up a teammate for the good of the team.  Our motion offense allows players the freedom to make plays and dare to be daring.  Although the players have this freedom, they are expected to stay within the realm of the system, which calls for good shot selection, to value each possession, sound fundamentals and execution.
