Nice to see balanced scoring from the Bingham girls team and not the one guard
taking all the shots. This will help them throughout the year
@sportsfan1If only you knew that that one guard wants what's best
for her team. Sounds like someone is a little jealous of the success that she
has earned. She could easily score at least 20 a game but no, she is
distributing the ball to her teammates so that they can be as successful as
possible. Read the quote that her very own coach said about her in the article.
Rand has had talented girls who can score, but he does not care. you do it his
way and its the right way, share the ball, play hard defense while your in, and
just buy into what he does as a coach. Every game he makes adjustments. Smart Coach....!
Hopefully Rand is getting the message to the girls that it the team that matters
and not the 1 player. It looks like it. Summer Yack must be a good player who
likes the team concept or else Rand wouldn't keep her in the games. So Far the
Miners have had an easy go of it. Brighton and West Jordan (as ususl) are
Horrible. When the Miners face a challenge it will be good to have players Like
Summer who can score alot, and also pass the ball. When teams play together
teams win. When one person tries to do it all, or hogs the ball, or playes for
personal stats, that's when disaster strikes.Unless your a Jimmer talent,
which no one at Bingham is, you better play as a team. It's worked for Rands
teams before, both in football and baseball.
When did Rand coach football at Bingham?
It is an interesting way to run a team, with so many girls coming in and out.
Not sure he will do this when they run into Lone Peak, Alta, Syracuse, etc. but
you have to give credit for building depth in that program. After watching
Bingham for many years at the state tournament, Rand has had many players that
have been able to score a lot of points but somehow, they are always unselfish
and share not only the ball but also the accolades that come along with winning.
Lots of scholarship players, all-state players, and some titles as well. If you
are a selfish player, not sure you could play for him. I certainly don't always
agree with the way he does things for he gets on the ref's and is tough on his
kids. But you have to give Rand and Bingham credit as well. They don't always
win but they have been a consistent contender for many years so they must be
doing something right. I work with one of his x-players and she loves him to
death. Calls him her 2nd dad. That is a compliment.
Why does the Bingham High School girls basketball coach get more press than amy
other girls program in the State?
InsideView, What are you talking about, this is the first article they have
written about the Bingham Girls Basketball Team. Are you jealous? does your team
not make the papers? The newspapers write about good teams. Improve your program
before you slam others.
Rand is a great coach...but, how can his players get in any kind of rythym?? ya
play for a bit and start getting hot and then BAM...... Next 5 in ! That would
my only complaint about playing that style of ball. He knows what he's doing,
but still would be hard to play like that.
hoops 24/7 - You bring up a good point. My guess that it is the better choice of
2 evils. Without any real size, Bingham tries to out-run/out condition teams. So
to play at the speed, 5 players would have trouble. You are right about the
rhythm, it is tough to get a great feel. By one other article that was done, the
players seem to like it and by their comments, their main concern is that they
win the game by whatever works. I find it refreshing that a program worries
about winning and teamwork before individual stuff. My daughter played for an
opponent of Bingham in the late 90's and it was the same then. Play for the
team, not for yourself. They seem to find their rhythm in the 2nd half when the
other team is tired. I have also heard from friends in that area that their
practices are very competitive. You will practice hard when you know you are
going to play. Can't argue with success.
the guy has 4 state titles in girls basketball, and been apart of the final four
at state, how many times? I cant even count!and he has numerous
state baseball titles coaching at Waterford and Bingham!this aritlce
did not talk anything about the coach. Everyone is because you have to respect
Rand. all those girls knowing stay at Bingham and go to Bingham, why
play at West Jordan, CH, Kearns, and get PT and lose alot! ha
Bingham coach will need to keep his 'watchful eye' out for syracuse-they are the
best girls team in the state!
coach hines - That is for sure. My bet is that Bingham loses at least twice
before even getting to Syracuse. Syracuse should be playing U of U and BYU in
order to get some competition.
Watchful eye should not make comments about his own team, it is not classy. go
HighSchoolSportsLover - Why get so defensive. I was just pointing out that
"over the years" (not just this year) the Bingham coach gets more
articles written about "Him" and his team than any other program in
the State of Utah. It's a fact. Yes, he has a very successful program and yes,
he is a good coach, but I also beleive he loves reading his name in the paper.
Insideview, Its not the coach that makes the chocie of who gets articles in the
papers, He probably does like reading his name in the paper, but it's not his
fault, the reports goto successful programs and write their articles, why bash
on a coach or program for being successful and getting in the papers
HighSchoolSportsLover - No bashing here. Just wondering why, over the years, RR
gets more press than other girls BB program. Some coaches have been known to
have a way to get the media to their games for the coverage and exposure they so
covet. I'm sure RR is an interesting interview for sports writers. It is
interesting to read articles on RR's teams and compare those articles about
other teams (I would invite you to make the comparison). The Bingham articles
mention the coaches name 2-3 times more than in articles about other teams. Now
ask yourself, is it all about the girls (players) or the coach?
InsideView,Keep trying to bash on a coach, who has states titles and
is who he is and doesnt change him self for anyone, He knows what to say, and
has been aroudn girls high school basketball longer then you have been alive
probably, so why would you not interview the guy when all he says is things that
are making his team better. What is your problem??Its about THE
TEAM! not anyone else, if you go to there practices u would see a whole new
world, he plays so many girls, he has people wanting to have there daughters go
play for him, so what do you have against aritcles choosing who to write about?
His team is 10-0 right? YES so who else they suppose to write
about?Syracuse is an amazing team, and rand has said nothing but
that. no one is comparing Bingham to Syracuse, becuase ya there out of everyone
elses league. But there has to be at least 3 4 teams who are up to challenge
them, and Bingham could be.
