What's up, basketball world?

My last post is quite old now, and a lot of things happened since that day. The team I'm working with as an assistant coach -Nantes Rez Basket, french women's 1st div- is now 3W-0L, a couple of weeks before entering the EuroCup pool stage.

Working with this group is great. The team is well balanced, from every point of view: Profiles of players, talent, positions, tempers, youthness/experience, etc... Our state of mind is to stay focused on each game, one after the other, and we don't have crazy ambitions and unreachable goals to achieve. We just stay humble and work. And win games, of course.

This is my second experience as an assistant coach with a W's professional team. The first one was about 10 years ago, and the season ended with a bankrupt, and weird things coming along. In Nantes-Rez, it's different: this kind of scenario can not happen here. We have a strong front office, and a solid organization. Probably one of the best of the league, which makes things easier for both coaches and players. The only thing we, coaching staff, have to care about is basketball, basically...

Our next two games are going to be tough. Next saturday, we will play home against Lyon. They have a bunch of good players, and the team is probably a title-contender. The head coach is the former one of Nantes-Rez, which makes the game a bit more spicy. After that, on saturday oct. 20, we'll fly to Perpignan, for another tough game against the solid runner up from 2nd div.

And then will come the EuroCup... 6 games to play, at least. The competition will change our habits, because we are going to play on wednesday/thursday (EuroCup) and weekends (domestic league). Less time to practice, crazy schedule, and a huge road trip to Novosibirsk, Siberia. Great experience. We'll play in the pool D against Wasserburg (Ger), Sint Katelijne (Bel), and Dynamo Guvd Novosibirsk (Rus). I can't wait, and I guess I'm not the only one.

Talk to you soon, hoopsters...

PS: Congratulations to my former player Kai Williams and his team of Pizza Express Apollon (Limassol, Cyp), just qualified for the FIBA EuroChallenge... Have a good season!

Bye, bye, EuroCup...- Jan.25, 2013  (by Romain)

Hello, world! Such a very- long time! Lot of things happened since the beginning of the season, of course. And the most notable one was our EuroCup season. Crazy road trips, unknown places, and a bad second game during the quarterfinals series. Its done. Weve been to Wasserburg (Ger), Sint Katelijne (Bel), Novosibirsk (Rus) during the pool stage. Our record at the end of the first phase, almost what we expected: 5-1 [read more]

Germany, Lithuania, summertime- Jul.17, 2012  (by Romain)

Hello, Once again, same sentence to begin my post: "Such a long time...". Yep, such a long time. While many coaches are actually getting ready for youth EC, or already leading their team to success (Or not... But I don't wanna upset my guys, or basically be the black cat...), I'm off. Offseason mode. In may, I had a great time with France u15W NT. First experience for me, as an assistant coach, with a French NT [read more]
