“So far, I think we did a great job communicating on defense and then also boxing out and getting rebounds. We’re so big this year and I try to emphasize rebound and out-rebounding the teams we play especially on the offensive end,” 1st-Year Harrison Central coach Aaron Foldei said.

“I mean, I’m a defensive guy and I’m always talking defense whether its getting in the right position but, you know, I think every defensive possession we stress that it’s got to end with defensive rebounds. I think if you can rebound the ball especially on the defensive end and limit team’s chances, that helps your chances,” Wheeling Central Catholic coach Mel Stephens said.
