The arc of the basketball is so accurate, the backspin so pristine that the net hardly moves even when it is disturbed.
Always the same. Bounce. Bounce. Bounce. Will Ruggles spins the ball in his hands. He takes aim, rises on his tiptoes then releases.
Swish. Well sort of. The arc through the net is so clean, the net snapping so suble that it is easy to miss.
But Ruggles toils on at a solitary goal at the north end of the gym at Anderson County High School.
On this day, assistant coach Billy Squires tracks down loose balls. Fifty shots, every day.
