Lawrence Co. Grant Kiser
” …Trying to get the Win and it just happened, happy to get everyone involved and pull out a victory. It was hard to rebound against those big guys, but I think we did ok.”
Lawrence Co. Head Coach Travis York
” …This group is tough and they never give up, they buckle down when they need to. Best rebounding and defense we have played as a group, needed it because we didn’t play very well on the offensive end. The zone created some problems for us and I’m sure we will see it again this year. Grant does a lot for us , he played well tonight and stayed out of foul trouble. Coach Anderson is a great coach and even better guy, he will have them ready tonight and it will be a battle at Boyd Co.”
