Wolverines get back into action against MitchellPublished 7:13pm Thursday, January 3, 2013
“We really showed a lot of fight and the next day we played really well against Chattanooga Christian,” he said.
Coach McEntire felt this all came at a good time as they reenter conference play tonight against Mitchell at home.
Mitchell is 1-1 in the conference and poses a particular challenge with a “big man” that has averaged 17 points and 11 rebounds per game.
When asked about defensive strategy coach said “We are going to try different things; first would be to trap their guards. We will also play some zone to surround him and of course double team him. But mainly we hope to speed up (with pressure) their guards.”
From a health standpoint the Wolverines are probably as healthy as they have been in some time. It typically was not a matter of injury but the various bugs and viruses being passed around.
“Finally we will be a complete team for the first time in a while; I think it helped everyone getting away from each other for a little bit. We look forward to crunch time right here, it’s a big part of our season with 12 conference games. From here out defines how your season is going to go… this is the time of year we need to come together,” said McEntire.
