Rowan Men’s Basketball team has gotten started off to a great start. As of tonight they are 6-0.

They have had some pretty close games but every time they have pulled out the win. Something that has helped them a lot as a team is hat they know how to play hard until the end. The team as a whole does not let up until the clock buzzes.

But these wins have not come without hard work.

After the past few games I have talked to a few of the key players on the team and i asked them what has helped them stay focused as a team during the games.

Kendall White a senior and captain of the team said “We have to come to practice ready to practice. If I have a huge paper due the next morning that I haven’t started yet then I know I won’t be able to give my 110% in practice because I’ll be distracted.”

White went on to talk about how being organized really helps. “I know that for me personally, I always pack my bag the night before a game. It helps me to prepare myself mentally and physically. Its the same thing you would do for a test, you study ahead of time so when it comes time I’m not freaking out trying to get ready.”

White is right.

Time management is not only about a schedule but being prepared ahead of time. Being prepared ahead of time makes it much easier to not stress out over your assignment. It will leave you more time to get yourself and your assignments together.

Having things done when they need to be done helps to avoid rushing things to get them in. also allowing yourself  enough time to do your work assures you that you will do your work to the best of the ability.

Also if you want to give your team the effort they deserve from you then its best to go to practice ready to practice with a clear head.

Overall, you need to work hard for you and your team. You are in college to learn, get an education, and get a degree. But you have to work hard for your team too. They need you just as much as you need them. So work hard, manage your time and be prepared.
