Although in-active from conference play during the holidays the Polk County Wolverines worked on getting ready for critical stretch of upcoming conference games by participating in a holiday basketball tournament in Cherokee over the break. Coach Josh McEntire felt it was a very positive experience for the team.
“Overall it was a good experience; we got better as a team and it gave us the opportunity to work on some things against non-conference opponents. It was also a good experience for the kids… spent a few nights in a hotel together, built some comradery and saw some really good basketball teams play. “He mentioned it specifically allowed them to further refine their rotations and what player combinations work best in specific game situations.
“I now have a better grasp on who I can play when; whether to go with a small lineup or big lineup and those kinds of things,” said McEntire
McEntire was particularly pleased with their play against Pisgah in the second half. After being down by 20, the Wolverines came back to take the lead and make it a very close game.
