D-League links

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

While this blog is primarily concerned with all things BayHawks, it will occasionally dip its toe in the water of basketball outside of Erie. What better way to do so than a links post.

On GoErie.com, Duane Rankin interviews coach John Treloar about his first season coaching the BayHawks:

"ETN: Looking back at the year, what did you learn most from this experience?

JT: Well, it was the first year for me in this minor league that is run and managed by the NBA. When I was at this level before (in the CBA), there were a little bit different management situations. Just learning the league and learning the little bit different rules and regulations that they go by, that was a learning thing for me. As far as the other coaches in the league, they're all new. I hadn't competed against most of them before. It was a year of me learning the opposing coaches and the players. A lot of players, it's the first time I've seen a lot of these guys. I didn't cross paths with them while I was in the college game over the last few years. It was a great opportunity for me to learn in a lot of different areas. Lastly, just the chance to come into this community and learn about this community and become a part of this community. Those are the things that jump out for me."
And in non-BayHawks D-League news, the 2009 D-League finals are set. The Utah Flash will host game one of the best-of-three series tonight against the Colorado 14ers (who defeated Erie in round one).
