The Coach

Arkansas Women’s Basketball Head Coach Mike Neighbors doesn’t want to hide from history. The Arkansas native is well-versed in the history of the program he inherited, including the struggles of the recent past. However, his attention doesn’t stay there long; he’d much rather talk about where the Razorbacks are headed, and how they plan to get there.

Prior to his homecoming at Arkansas, Neighbors guided Washington to four seasons of unprecedented success, highlighted by the 2016 NCAA Final Four and two NCAA Sweet 16 appearances

Very educational, great tips on how to implement this into any program! Especially liked the drills that are directly related to the offensive sets that Arkansas runs.

Just about everything from Coach Neighbors is insightful and great content. This is no different. Hard to see the film he posted because of the delay but nonetheless a great listen/watch.
