II. Off-Season Improvements
EM: What did you work on and add to your game over the summer and fall?
JH: I worked a lot on dribbling and shooting. I worked on shooting the most because I have to get my shot falling consistently, but I’ve been working on a lot of moves with the ball coming down the court as well.
