Today's Coaches Share question: Let's say Team X has a reasonably comfortable lead in the second half of a game. The coach of the team with the lead substitutes players into the game that have not played yet. Do you feel the team with the lead should hold the ball a little bit before looking to score so it doesn't appear they are running up the score? Or do these players deserve to play the game like the players in the regular rotation get to play? SIDE NOTE: Let's assume the team with the lead is not a full court pressing team for the sake of the discussion.
Remember coaches learn from each other. Share your thoughts on today's question and see it in Sunday's blog post.
