Musselman and The Mile
No way would the Big 0 make it.

You can’t teach Energy, Effort, or Enthusiasm. All 3 are contagious!


From a summer workout standpoint, we’ve added some things that are maybe a little bit new,” Musselman said. “We’ve added running the mile. Guards have to do 5:30, the wings 5:40 and the forwards 5:50. There are a good portion of guys that have already past that test. Once they make their times they are done for the summer in running those times. Some guys that haven’t passed originally are seeming to increase their times. In the weight room, the work that they’ve done with Coach Rich has been phenomenal.


Every year, like most basketball programs, we require our Wolf Pack players to run the mile and meet a certain time. Last year, we required all of our guards to run it in 5 minutes and 45 seconds, and our bigs to run it in 6 minutes. We ranked 52nd in the country in adjusted tempo last year. We love to play fast and run. Therefore, as a coaching staff we decided to bump up the time by 15 seconds (so guards would run it in 5:30 and bigs 5:45).

Trey Thompson read this and sent Mike a text thanking him for never doing this
