One team's plan to get better

Good story in this week's Sports Illustrated about Stephen Curry's move to the point, something I blogged about after reading a note about it in ESPN The Magazine recently.

But perhaps the most interesting part of the SI story was this paragraph:

A week after the loss to Kansas, the 11 returning players composed a five-page manifesto — titled Let's Get Better — in which they spelled out their off-season plans to improve their skills, diets and academics.

Said Davidson Coach Bob McKillop: "Right then you knew: Wow, we've got something special. We talk all the time about our quest to be a shining star, not a shooting star. Gonzaga is the one clear example for us: They have been consistent for a decade."
