It was so loud the kids couldn't hear. You try to give them hand signals, but they're 16, 17-year old kids. They're doing the best they can.
Our depth had a little bit of an upper hand tonight.
It wasn't easy coming back after one day but they came out well. Hey, it's tournament time.
Pressure changes everything, and I'm sure just like the rest of the kids there were a lot of nerves going. But he made them when they counted.
We tried to wear out Mike Venezia. He's a good player. We wanted to make him work.
The only thing I said to them before the game was if you don't bring energy, you'll get blown out. The kids proved to themselves they can play. The key will be, can we keep this up every night
I'm proud but disappointed, if that's possible. All you've got to do is make one play, but it's easier said than done.
Our job is to get the kids ready physically and mentally, but emotionally as well. What you tell the kids is, 'It's just a basketball game.' You have to rely on all the time and effort you spent becoming the player that you are. It really comes down to that.
