COACH'S COMMENTS

“... Happy with our kids' effort against Sherman it was a good win for us. We are continuing with our motto which is quarter by quarter and I thought we put four quarters together for the time. Thought we shared the ball well and hit the open man.”

“... Another motto for us this season is, it’s not my shot it’s our shot.”

“... Thought our two three zone was effective even though they made 13 threes, a lot of those were late.”

Tolsia Junior Guard Jacob Mollette

“...Wanted to get out in transition and make their big guys run the floor. That was coaches game plan coming in and it worked out for us.”
