“… We are pleased with the way we have started the season, much better then the start last season, we are playing with so much energy and the kids play so hard.” Those kind of things are what we look for, the other things we can improve on each day. We have a set rotation that we have been able to use this year and really shows our depth. The kids are playing about the same amount of minutes and that allows to is to play fast and not get wore down at the end of games.” We were down 10 or so Saturday with a minute to go and our kids were still diving on the floor for loose balls and love to see that effort.” We talked about playing faster in the preseason and getting up a bunch of shots and that has been the case so far, now if we can get our shooting percentage up we’re it needs to be we will be in good shape.” We still got some games before we start District play to work on some stuff.”
