The Seattle Times reports on Family SportsLife Today's exhibition on June 16th at Hec-Ed

Coach Tom Newell says he thinks basketball, especially its highest levels, has devolved from the team game it was designed to be, with players spending too much time working one on one and focusing on dunks and other highlight-reel plays.

"That's not the way the game was invented," Newell said. "It was intended to be a template of how to work together and how to set screens and move without the ball and make the various passes that are necessary to make the plays successful."

Eleven-foot rims, Newell thinks, would eliminate the dunk and also require more teamwork to get the ball closer to the hoop.
