Lawrence Co. Head Coach Chandler Thompson
“… We had three games of film on them and we knew they were going to play hard and you’re exactly right they were relentless. Even this morning we tried to prepare them for that and get them in the right frame of mind that if we didn’t come ready to play they would hit us right in the mouth. I thought we got off to a fast start and it carried through the entire game. They hit some tough shots.”
“… They are a good team and This is a good win. The third quarter we came out and extended the lead out to 14-15 points with some key shots from our guys. We thought they would drive before they shot from a few people in Ohio that I know but they shot before they drove. We tried to pack it in on them a little. They shot it well from the outside and made some threes.”
“… Cody has been hot the last couple games and hit a huge shot right before the third quarter horn to extend our lead. Him and Trenton are fun to coach. They do so many good things and are all over the floor. I’m blessed to Coach all of these guys.”
“… We went 28 of 32 from the line and that is encouraging for sure. We started out shooting 63% and we kinda clamped down on them and we shoot them they aren’t allowed to talk to make sure they are taking it serious. We have two tough trips next week with Martin Co. and and our first District game with Floyd Central.”
