Bill From Tampa: Coach Hamilton often mentions the many things you do during a game that don’t show up in the boxscore. He has called you his on the floor coach. After you are done playing the game is coaching something you would like to go into coaching?

Senior Guard – Nate Johnson: Soem advice I would give you is to always be the first player in the gym and the last player to leave the gym. During the time you are in the gym you must always wbe working on something to improve yours and your teammates games. As the back-up point guard, you have to do more than the person in front of you is doing to become the starter.

Senior Guard – Nate Johnson: I’ll have to be honest with you — I don’t remember that happening.
