Monticello was struggling against Bellevue’s matchup zone defense in the Tuesday, Feb. 7 boys basketball regular season finale at Bellevue.
So in the middle of the second quarter, the coaching staff told the team to have some fun.
“We told them, ‘Don’t run an offense,’ ” Monticello coach Tim Lambert said. “It was basically a pickup game the rest of the game. Pass and cut; that’s all they did. And it was way better. It just opened up the driving lanes.”
