I coach 8th grade girls traveling basketball. My team is an average to above average team.
We are having a problem as of late making simple layups. My players are also having a problem holding onto the ball when a pass is thrown their way.
I have tried numerous basketball drills and it seems like it’s all in their head. In practice they are great. When it comes to crunch time it’s like they get rattled or scared.
For example, the other night in our basketball game we had a 7 point lead at halftime with 7 turnovers. We ended up losing by 9 and had 14 turnovers in the 2nd half.
Do you have any basketball tips that would help me?
