Comments from Pilot Grove Coach Rick Grunden:

We talked all last week about getting our hands out on defense and anticipating passes. We did a better job of both tonight and we were able to force Westran into some turnovers. Offensively we were more patient, but we need to learn to extend that patience more. We expect to play in many close games this year and both clock and shot management are important for us. My boys played hard the entire game and I was proud of how they handled themselves on the court. Confidence is our selves and each other is key to our success. We will take the rest of the week to prepare for an ever improving Bunceton team in a non-conference match up.
