He's been a great encouragement to me. He said to be a great point guard I have to get my assists and rebounds as well as my points. Right now I'd rather have 10 assists than six points.

Having them makes everything easier. They get us second-chance points, they block shots and they bring a lot of heart.

We tried to keep the defense up on them and that led to getting our offense started. I was as happy about our defense during that stretch as I was about our offense. We tried to drive in, penetrate and then kick it out.

I saw his eyes, and I tried to get a jump on the ball. I was fortunate to get a hand on it.

We brought the Worthington Christian name back into play. We got past district and we got to play in the regional final. I am just glad I got the chance to play with those guys. This is a very special group of guys.

This is something we've been working for the past three years. We've gotten beat on a buzzer-beater the last two years (50-49 loss to Johnstown in a Division III district final two years ago, 54-53 loss to Bloom-Carroll in a Division III district final last year), so we're working hard to make sure that doesn't happen again.
