Tolsia Head Coach Todd Maynard

COACH'S COMMENTS

“... They were big and their length gave us some trouble throughout the game. You know we are small and the dynamics of our team is to get out and score in transition. They really kept us in a half court game most of the night and our kids responded for the most part.”

“... Thought our kids showed some grit tonight with the comeback win. They had a will to win and it really showed in the second half.”

“ Our schedule doesn’t get any easier with Lawrence Co. Saturday and the Hatfield/McCoy Shootout next weekend.”
