This season of UM basketball is one of the most exciting seasons I have ever watched and I'm cautiously excited for the future. There is one thing that I have noticed about Coach Belein that I haven't really ever seen in other coaches, and I watch a lot of college basketball.
Our team is young and they make a lot of stupid mistakes including the classic freshmen turnovers and Manny Harris-esque shots. I think last night's 5 second call was the first one I had seen in a year. However, when these mistakes are made, Coach Belein turns to the bench and makes it a teaching moment. I've noticed that he immediately is telling the players how you should hold the ball in that situation, which way to move, etc.
I would think this would be common sense among coaches throughout the NCAA and maybe I'm mistaken but I can't recall seeing this too much in other games I have watched. I'm not saying Belein is the only coach doing this, but it sure explains the improvement we see in his players year after year.
I wanted to get your thoughts on if anyone else had noticed this and what other aspects you think make his coaching that truly improves players. Just a good old basketball discussion.
