The level of competition throughout the Iowa Conference, regardless of the sport, is very high. So when you stick the six best basketball teams that have already played each other in two close contests during the regular season into a postseason tournament, every move, every possession becomes critical. Central men’s basketball coach, Craig Douma agrees, and says that while both teams are very familiar with one another, there are still things you can do to try and trip up your opponents. Douma adds that even the smaller runs are key, and uses the most recent NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs as an example of how those little spurts can turn into big things at big moments in the ballgame.
