Is the defense in the boys' games as atrocious as it is in the girls' games? It's a slap and reach fest in the nearly dozen girls' games that I've watched this year. Coaches are getting upset when reaching fouls are called. No-one moves their feet. No-one cuts off the sideline or baseline. Defenders ride the girl with the ball until a foul is called or she easily goes around for a layup. There isn't any space given to avoid either scenario, and coaches get mad when it happens. If I hear another coach yell "grab the ball" or "get the ball" while a girl is dribbling the ball, I'm going to pull my ears off. How about moving your feet, stepping out-of-bounds to cut off the sideline and baseline, properly defending the passing lanes, staying straight up instead of slapping, cutting off the strong side, etc. Teach the fundamentals instead of telling the girls to Bobby Boucher-it to get the ball.
