But Tamica Goree has changed an old theory. Tamica Goree is a former NCAA basketball player from Indiana State University. Now she has become Nation’s best basketball coach and prepares many student-athletes to go to next level of basketball. She earned high respects playing point watch for the Sycamores. She ascribes her prosperity to her mental sturdiness. She thinks that one should be mentally tough to play sport at the college level.
She has stuffed this thinking in her coaching. The main reason behind her success as a coach is discipline and being able to overcome adversity. Garoo feels really proud and happy if as a coach her player make it to next level but she appreciates more when a player excels in the classroom too.
