Coach’s comments: “Our players have traveled together already (Henryville tourney) and that helps them bond. We saw how they react in game situations. We are young and that trip really helps bring us together faster. Our JV team played there too … We’re going to play 30-second basketball with these girls. We’re going to get the ball up the court and if you take it away, we’re gonna try to take it away from you.
“Our defense will start with a full-court press. It means that our kids will have to be in condition. We want them to run hard, not just fast. We have to improve our transition game. As a team, they are learning to put everything together that we teach them. We want them to get to the point they move automatically on offense and defense. We’ll have a late-blooming team.”
