Adding Links, Scouts, Ex Coaches, All American Hopes

#7 posting 1.3.2008
your daily dose of girls basketball news & information

I have been upgrading some of my links thanks to reader support. I have added some newspapers, and put the Minnesota Community College links up in the College site link ups.
Preps on the Net is a Wisconsin based site that has details on what is going on in the Badger state. You will need to join (it is free) to access their information. They even have video of games on the net. If I am reading the site correctly you will be able to see or pick from 16 games available for video streaming. You can also go back and look at archived games. It usually is a one camera look.

Here is TrueHoop with a look at the life of an advance scout in the NBA. I guess in some regards, I am an advance scout minus the airplane trips, hotels. Another big difference is I am not on any one's payroll.
