    I have never been the type of person to blame a coach for losing a basketball game, especially being a coach myself. But there is no way Hillside at the least should of won that game. This coach makes more subs than subways. Southern was down 5 at the end of the first half. They came out the 3rd quarter and Southern jumped all over Hillside taking back the lead and momentum. Hillside coach gets discouraged with what he has on the floor and pulled all 5 of his players out. Low and behold the Southern coach sees this and counters with his own 5 man substitution. Not 1 but all 5 men who just took back the momentum and the lead. Who does that at this level of basketball? I haven't seen substitutions like that since rec league and this isn't the first time I have ever seen him do this. Hillside then takes back the lead and momentum and never looked back after that

    When you have the momentum and the lead. It isn't you that has to make adjustments to stop the bleeding. Its the losing team that needs to do that. My words of wisdom to the coach is " If it ain't broke, you don't fix it!"
