2013 Holiday Card
Holiday wishes from USA Basketball
Malik Newman (Callaway H.S./Jackson, Miss.) took home Tournament MVP as the 2014 USA Basketball Men’s U17 World Championship Team won gold at the FIBA U17 World Championship in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in August. Newman's message to youth basketball players: focus on the basics and always have fun playing the game.
Legendary youth basketball coach Don Showalter believes that too much emphasis might be placed on actually playing the games. Skill development, he says, is critical for young players to work on before they start getting into game action.
