I'm just proud of our guys just how we've refocused ourselves, come together as a team, shared the ball, played hard and defended. Sometimes the light bulb goes on at different times. It's good for us that it's gone on during the playoffs.

Liggins and Little are both very, very good players, and they are complemented well by their other guys. We have our work cut out for us.

I think the Public League is very strong. There is a great chance to have three teams Downstate.

I've been gone for two years, but I still know a lot of the guys over there. It's always good to be in a competitive atmosphere with people you like. Coach [Bobby] Locke is doing a good job at Evanston.
