Spartan coach Brian Brooks was rather disappointed with his team’s effort and sense of urgency, and gave Westville plenty of credit in that regard.
“We’re not playing with the kind of energy that we’re accustomed to,” Brooks said after the game. “The staple of our team’s identity has always been about ball pressure and putting pressure on teams, and we haven’t really done that yet.”
Westville will begin play in the aforementioned Leader Classic on Saturday, when they will play twice. The Tigers will face the Olympia Spartans in White Pool play at 12:30 p.m., and then will have a little break before taking on the Fisher Bunnies at 6:30 p.m.
