Lawrence Co. Head Coach Travis York
“Our energy wasn’t where it needed to be in the 1st quarter. We tried to press and you need 5 guys with energy so we had to change to that half court press and we had a lot more discipline after that. Had some adversity with foul trouble and me getting a technical. Played a lot better in the 2nd half showed a lot of heart and grit. 10 days off before we play again so it looks like a lot of running to get into basketball shape before June Buchanan.”
