How to Win:
You win by being gracious and humble.
Win in a way that the team you beat will cheer for you when you advance.
You’ve won so you don’t need to say or do anything else.
Celebrate. But not in the face of the team that you beat.
How to Lose:
Lose by gaining knowledge to be tougher and wiser so that you can win next time.
The best way to lose is to gain from the experience… make note of the positives and the places that you need to improve upon.
How to be Interviewed:
Complement your opponent.
Complement your coach and teammates.
Say something positive about the game and your hopes for the future.
This is difficult to do when you lose, but shows strong character.
