tournament strategy

I see quite a bit of talk on shooting and trying to win matches by scoring points. What I want to bring into focus is creating a tournament strategy for your team. I personally do not think that if you are winning in a match that you should take risks and continue to increase the score by shooting. At that point you should focus on getting assist points. Most tournaments will see few undefeated teams this year in my opinion. Assist points will be the difference from being first seed and fourth seed. How coaches manage the match will be very very important.

I’d say if you know you’ll lose a match anyway, go for all the assist points you can get.
