COACH'S COMMENTS

“... Sluggish start for us, I told them in the locker room the crowd wasn’t going to be very good tonight and that they needed to bring the energy from the get go. Rose Hill really battled but our guys got the win and that is what counts.”

“... Thought we played pretty decent against a very good Pike Co. Central team that is loaded with athletics and length. The score didn’t show how our guys competed.”

“... We will get back to work this week and get ready for St. Joe, they are a good team and always play well at home. Our guards will have to handle the pressure that they will bring.”
