From Coach Hays: “I’m extremely proud of our basketball team. We went back to work Wednesday and Thursday to improve on things from our last game against Jayhawk. Our ball screen defense was much better and ball movement on the offensive end was improved as well. We aren’t where we need to be yet, but we are getting there. I loved seeing everyone get involved against Chetopa.”
