For a high school game this is the biggest culprit IMO. I can only talk about what I've experienced. Sure game management is important but there are guys doing Varsity basketball that wouldn't know game management if it walked up and said "Hello, is it me you're looking for?" Some other problems IMO:

Saying your are going to do something and going out and NOT doing it
Not knowing how to apply the rules (counting the basket when someone slaps the backboard)
Not having courage
Wanting to be too PC
Not knowing primaries and ball watching
Worrying about the wrong things (I probably didn't toss the ball the last month of the season and didn't care)

I don't know, I don't really have much to say about this!
