But his J-Hawk girls certainly paid attention to what he had to tell them at halftime Tuesday night as they turned a two-point lead into a 24-point blowout over Prairie in the Jeff gym.
“Coach always tells us to aim for three things,” said junior sparkplug guard Sam Kitterman following the 51-27 runaway win. “Defend, rebound and run.”
Sophomore backcourt running mate Avery Guy repeated the mantra. “He says if we do those three things right, we’ll win games,” she said.
After a sometimes sloppy first half, Jefferson’s girls followed instructions from then on with near perfection. They held Prairie to just five points in the third quarter and kept them from scoring any points at all in the fourth quarter.
