Wisdom Wednesday

Posted on 22-01-2020

After Taco Tuesday it is time for Wisdom Wednesday. Do you see yourself as a good player? Can you explain how and why you make specific moves and your positioning on the court? In some cases it is easier done than said, but it is very important that you can communicate clearly to your team on how to improve. 

Don't be the "I know what's right"-guy. Begin improving your understanding of the game first by practicing on the court, but also by reading NBA Coaches Playbook. Knowing the ins and outs of the game from the coaches perspective will not only make you understand the game better, but it will also make you enjoy the game more!

 

NBA Coaches Playbook takes you into the practice sessions and sideline huddles with detailed Xs and Os and more from the game's best at maximizing performance on the court. Let the likes of Phil Jackson, Mike D'Antoni, Avery Johnson, Stan Van Gundy, George Karl, Eddie Jordan, Mike Dunleavy, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and many other head and assistant coaches provide you with new insights to benefit your own team and individual players.

Jan in de Delft op Zondag!

Posted on 17-01-2018

De Delft op Zondag heeft een interview gehouden met onze Jan over de gloriejaren van Punch!

Aangezien het artikel in het Nederlands is, zal Jan het zeker niet erg vinden dat er wat meer Nederlandsche taal op deze site staat.

3rd Victory!!

Posted on 11-12-2017

The victory by the largest scoring of the season so far was not predictable. The warming up consisted on half an hour of unlucky shooting, which seemed to announce a bitter game. Meanwhile, in the other half of the court, the ladies representing B.V. Juventus were smoothly fulfilling their shots at an impressive pace. But after the referee’s opening whistle, the tables were turned and Ladies 2 got on fire!!

The first quarter started by an 18-0 score. 7 minutes of shooting accuracy signed by Marieke, Eureka, Niki, Bianca and Laura. Made in TU Delft. Then, after the B.V. Juventus opened their score, 3 more buckets by Paula, Lotte and Noor brought us to a final score of 23-8.

The second quarter started under the expectancy of both the team and the crowd. We all then got aware that we were facing the opportunity of making the highest score of the season, and we definitely went for it! Caroline’s whist was especially sharped for the occasion: she scored 7 points in 5 minutes with the magic #111 on her back! The score of the second quarter was 20-8.

After the break, the girls came back to the court with the same determination. The local team signed a 100% of accuracy on free shots, whereas the rivals were not blessed at all: 1/8. The vibe in the hall was impressive! We could feel our crowd celebrating our buckets and blocks! The quarter ended 14-3.

The final quarter arrived and we knew we had to finish what we’d started! The match was getting long due to the large amount of buckets and faults, but we were enjoying our moment. Unfortunately, Noor got her ankle twisted, but at the end of the match she was recovered. Sara scored the last bucket of the game, closing it 73-23.

The match ended with a difference of 50 points. It was a fun and satisfying game that we will still try to break during the season, when we can count with all our team members (Imane get better soon!). Thanks a lot to the referees and the crowd!

Buckets: Marieke 10 / Eureka 11 / Niki 6 / Bianca 8 / Laura 4 / Paula 12 / Noor 7 / Lotte 4 / Sara 4 / Caroline 7
