SAN FRANCISCO, March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Unfortunately many Basketball Student Athletes don't take advantage of their resources and opportunities in front of them, according to Cordell Davenport, author of "Basketball To Success. How To Be The Prepared Student Athlete and Not Foul Out In Life."
"Basketball Student Athletes having athletic ability without focus is like having an octopus on roller skates, having lots of action but no direction," said the former college athlete who now advises basketball coaches and basketball students at the high school and college levels.
"Years later they will wish they could go back and do things differently, but unfortunately it is too late. They are a day late and a dollar short. If they were focused and prepared to better themselves, they could avoid life obstacles," said Davenport, a popular speaker on high school and college campuses.

The book mentions 5 Foul Out Habits:
1. Players waste a lot of energy without getting where they really want to go. One reason is because they don't know where to go. They can't hit a target they can't see.
2. Players don't bother to learn the rules and principles of self-improvement. Just like as a kid they learned the rules of basketball, players need to learn the rules of self-improvement.
3. Players hang around the "wrong" crowd. The saying is so true, "Birds of the same feather flock together." They don't understand they are the average of the five people they spend the most time with.
4. Players don't take accountability of their actions. Winners make progress and losers make excuses.
5. Players don't have self-discipline. Self-discipline is to purposely do what they should be doing when they don't feel like doing it.
