Post more victories this season and every season with advice from high school basketball's ultimate winner!

In Coaching Basketball Successfully Morgan Wootten shares his full arsenal of coaching wisdom on topics ranging from player communication and motivation to Xs and Os. The new material on zone offense, quick-hitting plays off the secondary break, man-to-man and trapping defenses, and situational in-bounds plays is sure to make this second edition even more popular than the original work (which sold more than 75,000 copies). This latest edition includes guidelines for physical conditioning, recommendations for job interviewing, advice on conducting summer camps, and a master plan for handling game situations. And sprinkled throughout the book are many of Wootten's "thought for the day" phrases the coach has found especially effective in motivating and communicating important lessons to athletes.

Wootten amassed the most successful high school coaching record ever (1,274-192) during his 46-year career at DeMatha High School in Hyattsville, Maryland. His coaching has been praised by the game's best all-time coaches: John Wooden, Mike Krzyzewski, Bob Knight, Pat Riley, Rick Pitino, Lute Olson, Dean Smith, Chuck Daly, and others.

Now, in Coaching Basketball Successfully , Wootten shares the wealth of knowledge that produced a .869 winning percentage, 5 national championships, a National Basketball Hall of Fame induction, and hundreds of high-achieving student-athletes.

Just as Wootten is considered the best high school basketball coach, legendary UCLA coach John Wooden is considered the best college basketball coach. So when Wooden states that Wootten's " Coaching Basketball Successfully is as fine a teaching aid on the development of a high school team and program as I have ever read," he speaks with authority on the quality and appeal of this book.

This edition of Coaching Basketball Successfully proves that you can improve on a classic. With expanded offensive and defensive tactics and new personal insights from one of the game's greatest coaches ever, this book is sure to be a winner for many years to come.
