So You Want to Win! Stay in the Moment

So You Want to Win! Stay in the Moment
BY MIKE TULLY
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

By now you may have heard of the two Tennessee prep teams who tried to lose a basketball game.

According to an article on ESPNW, Riverdale, a state champion in 2013, and Smyrna were fined a total of $1,500 each and placed on probation for a year by the state athletic association.

Both teams apparently were trying to avoid a game against a top-ranked squad.

"This situation defeated the purpose of educational-based athletics," said Bernard Childress, head of the Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association, citing ethics, integrity, sportsmanship, morals and values.

Aside from all that, losing on purpose involves one other problem -- it’s bad psychology.

Looking ahead is one of the worst mistakes an athlete or a coach can make. Any great athlete will tell you that staying in the moment is the key to success.
