Tolsia Head Coach Todd Maynard
“… Down the stretch we played well, we didn’t shoot free throws very well and let them hang around be we closed it out. We are learning as a team to finish strong. Last year we had trouble doing that and lost some games we should have won.”
“… They (PLAYERS) are starting to understand we have to take care of business every night, whether we are playing Sherman or Huntington you have to come ready to play. We have to be competitive on a night in and night out basis. This week is tough with Christmas and trying to keep the kids focused on the task at hand. Was really proud of them tonight.”
