It is important to be quick on the court,” Beshears said. “You must react fast and keep playing.”

Think Fast - Crawford passes the ball to Junior Keller Bridges, who swiftly dribbles past the defenders and sinks a three-pointer.

“You need to have a quick mindset when you're playing,” Crawford said. “You must also be poised and not rushed at the same time, having a calm mindset.”
