“…We are in much better shape now, and we have a better understanding of the style of basketball we want to play. That definitely showed tonight. The tempo was where we wanted it and our physical presence on defense was much better.” Western Boone forced 38 turnovers in the game and held Fountain Central to a 15 of 35 (42.9 percent) shooting. Through the first three quarters, the shooting percentage was 26.1 percent. “We went back to a little more old coach Schelsky basketball in terms of physical, pressuring man-to-man defense,” Schelsky said. “I was really proud of the way the kids played. We had a few hiccups, we have some technical things we need to get better at, but overall it was good. We haven’t played much man the last 365 days, and for that to be the performance we put forth; I’m really proud of their effort.” (Interview by Will Willems – Sports Editor – Lebanon Reporter)
