Ryan Hollins' Tournament Words of Wisdom

Ryan Hollins was a UCLA player who went on a tear in the tournament to lead UCLA to one game within the NCAA title.  He saw it all in his UCLA career from the lows of being benched to starting in the championship game. 

Ryan did a recent interview for the Cavaliers website that should have a few words of wisdom for UCLA players:

During those times, I think everyone cut out the nonsense – (not that we were into anything bad). We just kept to ourselves, kept to our families. Kept everything at a minimum. Because the further along you go, everyone wants to hit you up and give their opinion.

They cut out the nonsense and focused:

I think as a team, you kind of have to hit that zone. We were concentrating on doing everything we had to do to win games. We had complete focus. And I think we gave up "ourselves" for the better of the team. And each and every player did that.

More after the jump.

Part of that focusing is listening to CBH.  As Hollins describes:

The thing that makes Ben good is consistency. If you give Ben a chance to gameplan for a team and the guys follow that gameplan, you’re going to be successful.

He’s probably one of the most thorough coaches in basketball and he’s taught me a lot about the small details of the game.

CBH will create a game plan that will allow the team to go out and win.  Focus Bruins like Ryan Hollins describes and give it your all, and you will likely be successful.  Those little details are important for 40 minutes.

Go Bruins.
