Team Mahurin: Welcome

Team Mahurin Basketball

Welcome to the Coach Mahurin web page.  I am currently the head coach of the Edgewood Mustangs in Ellettsville, Indiana.  I'm thrilled to be back in coaching and at Edgewood HS!  

I'll use this page to cover our squads and keep readers informed about the Mustangs, my kids (Lane and Beth are still hooping it up), other former players, and whatever else comes to mind.  This page has been around for about a decade, so I'm keeping it rather than building a new one.

Please note that I usually blast this stuff together pretty fast, and my spell check does not work on this program (or I'm not smart enough to use it!)  There will be typos, omissions, and errors.  Please read through them.  If anything printed here is offensive, I apologize in advance.  I try to communicate honestly through this site.

My wife recently changed her home base for hair care business here in the Ellettsville area.  She asked me to let those of you looking for hair care know that she's moved.  However, I have no idea just who to tell (yes...I know I should listen more...)

Anyway...

Lots of Thank You's To Dish Out!

Wow...what a great summer season.  The trip to Fort Wayne capped off a pretty successful summer.  The varsity played close to 30 games, and the younger teams played a boatload too.

While it's always dangerous to do so, I need to try to thank several folks for their help.  

First Coach Anderson is one of the first assistants I've ever had who helped me with sumer hoops.  He was very helpful. 

Mr. Jacobs played a crucial role for us as well.  He traveled with us and supported us in lots of ways from driving to providing water...to doing all sorts of behind the scenes stuff.

The entire Patton family from mom and dad to grandma, grandpa and aunts....wow...what a dinner you guys provided in Fort Wayne.  Thanks so much. 

Ms Banister helped organize snacks for the kids.  Thanks to her and all those who chipped in. 

Mr. Cradick kept score one game!!!  That was fun. 

I know there were others as well...thanks to you all.  It was a great trip.  Our juniors are now "on the clock" in regard to next summer.

WOW....Crazy Days

Mr. and Mrs. Lane Mahurin

Well we've been going and coming...and coming and going....  The past couple weeks has been over the top.  I've had a son get married, a team travel all over the place, our kids worked a youth camp, I've been trying to work in the main office, and we've had open gyms/practices that have been well attended.

If it really mattered, we note that the varsity currently stands 19-4 for the summer.  That number is a little deceiving...the schedule has been average at best...we've been playing with some kids and without others...and the summer record means nothing!  However, if we are going to keep score, I want to win regardless of the time of year.

I'd rate us as a slightly better than average.  We are again dangerous.  I made a comment at Rockville that some tried to twist.  I said that, "I have the best group of shooters I've ever had."  I stand by that.  I've had some great shooters (RJ and Aaron both come to mind), but I've never had a collection of shooters this good.

I'd like to think our depth has improved but I can't really be sure yet.  I would say that the program is in a much more comfortable place for me than it was a year ago.  Kids have a little more idea just what I expect.  I'm not much into negotiation or half efforts.  I don't have a complaint department.  I know there are lots of other ways to do things...but we need to all do things the same way...like a team does. 

Our achilles heal is still glaring...we need physical strength and athleticism.  We do not look like a 3A team.  I'm looking closely at an organized strength and conditioning effort.  It's just hard to manage the time right now.  There are no easy ways out, and none of the old excuses are valid ... they are just excuses.  It's never too early to become athletic.  When lifting weights the correct way, it does not damage growth plates or hurt your shot form.  The "I'm lifting at home" story is 90% BS.  If you're not any bigger or stronger now than you were when the season ended, you're not lifting weights.  Stop lying to yourself and don't lie to me...Get yourself into a workout program.

Our mental approach to the game is improving.  Our effort seems to be improving.  We need to use the month of July to get our bodies headed in the right direction...expect the weight room sessions to begin after the dead week.
