Central hoops eye region play-in



The girls will take a much different approach in their 6 p.m. contest.
Coach Deatrice Hose believes fast-pace transition and a full court press will beat the Lady Hawks, and has sprinkled aggression into her unit’s mental gameplan.
“Overall, I think we’re going to have to work hard the whole way through the game. Neither team is just going to lay down,” Hose said.
Free throws were the ultimate factor in the Lady Yellow Jackets’ most recent outing against Bainbridge last Tuesday. Central missed 23 of 39 from the line and fell 41-33.
Hose said the squad spent roughly an hour on free throws alone last week in lieu of the defeat.
“I think for us, free throws are more of a mental block at times than physical because they are fully capable,” she said. “Hopefully the time we put in last week will pay off for us.”
Both teams agree that playing in the confines of their own gym could not only be a determining factor, but a defining one also.
The Central crowd was about half full last Tuesday yet extremely raucous. Both coaches are anticipating the best turn out of the season tonight.
“They’ve been waiting for something like this to happen,” Ward. “We have the best student section in the county, I think. They’re amazing. They try to get into the other team’s best player’s head and get them all rattled, and they do a great job. We need all the support we can get.”
