Same philosophy under Ceal? Same philosophy for Lappe?
I don't remember Ceal's best teams turning the ball over much at all. They loved to run, especially with Shelley Sheetz at the point, but I don't recall that they had a lot of turnovers. Now, my recollection could be clouded by their success, so maybe some of the other old ****s can add to this.
I also think that the type of turnover is more important than how many you have. Lazy turnovers -- travelling, bad passes while running the half-court offense, having the ball stolen off the dribble, etc -- are not good ever. Aggressive turnovers -- trying to thread a pass while on a fast break but missing, and the like -- are more forgiveable as long as they are somewhat limited.
I don't recall a lot of turnovers either. I used to attend a lot of practices back in the day and they had a set number where they got to run suicides if they committed more than that in a game.
Ceal did have a philosophy of a good turnover and a bad turnover. Some just happen with the speed of the game. If somebody was totally out of position or got beat, that is a bad turnover.
I don't recall the teams with Sheetz at the point committing a lot of turnover. You don't get to 30-3 by committing turnovers.
