One of my favorite sayings is that if you are not hitting the ball you can't make a mistake.
What do I mean? Make your opponent or opponents play one extra shot! When you are on the defensive, don't try to hit an amazing shot. Instead, just try to make the ball any way you can. A lob is a great choice or just pushing the ball back deep.
One of the biggest differences between an average college player and a great college player is what they try to do when they are on the defense.
Just get the ball back!!! Make your opponent earn it. Don't Dont' Don't give them a free point. Give them a chance to make a mistake!!!
Hit them smart Cats!!!
