The problem with young guys is, they want to work on every (offensive) move," Mitchell said. "Just get one to start with. Make people have to defend one.

"It's something we have to ingrain in him, that you don't have to have the full arsenal right away."

Mitchell knows Sow, a 6-foot-10 centre/forward, is far more comfortable on the defensive end of the court than he is at the offensive end. So when Sow is seen working on a wide array of things during practices, Mitchell will step in and narrow the focus.

"We stop him and try to get him to concentrate on one thing," Mitchell said. "As a player you want to be complete and work on everything, and you do have to work on all aspects. But if he could get one go-to move, that would accelerate his progress a lot."

Must be a misprint. There can't possibly be a positive article about both one of our players AND our coach in a Toronto paper. Not even a backhanded compliment or anything!
