Canisius College Women’s Basketball Practice

The fall tour officially started last weekend with the Nike Championship Basketball Clinic in Richmond, the University of Richmond Women’s practice and continued with a stop in at Canisius College.  Terry Zeh and his staff welcomed me to the Koessler Center the other day for their team workout.

It was impressive how the workout was intense, spirited and this staff really works well together.

Another thing that really impressed me is the renovated Women’s Basketball Locker room.  Amazing!  Complete with a theater-style seating video center, power ventilated individual wooden lockers and a variety of first class amenities – not very many schools have this type of facility.  I looked for pictures to link to, but did not find them.  Lesson learned, on my next trip I will take some of my own to include.  You can follow the Griffs here on Twitter.

I picked up another exceptional full court shooting drill.  A Full-Court, Transition jump shot drill emphasizing sprinting the floor, getting down (Sitting Down) into your shot and competing vs. time and score.

This full-court shooting drill is good for conditioning as well as getting your footwork right while sprinting into your shot.  The competition aspect against time & score challenged the team, kept them pushing hard.
