Lawrence Co. Head Coach Chandler Thompson
“… Big district win on Friday night at home. We didn’t play well in many aspects of the game but our kids were able to maintain enough focus to pull out a win. We talk all the time about being able to win games when things don’t go your way. Give credit to Floyd Central because they were able to get up in us and make sure things didn’t go our way and played extremely well. But at the end of the day our guys were able to scrap one out and ensure that we got the win. That is very encouraging to see from our team at this point in the year. Battling adversity and overcoming it is a step in the right direction!”
“… Typically to win a region tournament you will have one game similar to this. One that you have to grind it out. Although you’d love to play well every time you step on the court, it just isn’t realistic. Learn from it and move on. Very proud of our team for finding ways to win!”
