Here’s how to turn a college program around almost instantly. Sign up the Number One prospect in his class, Michael Porter Jr., who also happens to be a McDonald All-American. Michael’s father was recently added to the Mizzou coaching staff which is why Michael Junior decided to transfer from Washington. “I want to play for my dad,” said Michael. “I trust him.” Danny Manning played on a national championship team at Kansas University when he decided to join his father, who also was on the KU coaching staff. Michael’s father’s coaching background includes six years on the Missouri women’s basketball staff – three as director of basketball operations and three more as an assistant coach. So he’s not new to Missouri fans. Mizzou’s new head coach Cuonzo Martin is a lucky guy. But I don’t consider it luck that just as he takes over the reins of Mizzou basketball he has one of America’s top talents join his team. This is the kind of thing that happens when you are happy and your life is in harmony. Which applies perfectly to Coach Martin.
WHY COACH CUONZO MARTIN AND THE UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE MEN’S BASKETBALL TEAM ARE EXPERIENCING SUCCESS LATE IN THEIR SEASON.
Posted March 23, 2014on:
Coach Cuonzo Martin, who was formerly head basketball coach of the Missouri State University Bears here in Springfield, Missouri, is experiencing a great deal of success late in the season. In my opinion, there are a number of reasons for this. First and foremost he obviously has some very talented players, including Quinton Chievous, son of former All-American Derrick Chievous. But he is also holding team meetings, allowing his athletes to vent their feelings and talk about their personal issues before competing. And last but not least, according to news reports in the media, he’s having his team visualize being successful by watching videos of themselves performing while listening to Luther Vandross’ recording of “One Shining Moment.” I’m predicting his team will make it to the sweet sixteen in the NCAA Tournament. And they could go even further.
