ConcordiaLutheran boy's basketball coach Josh Eggold spoke with The News-Sentinel Thursday following his team's 64-63 victory over New Haven:Steve is different, he is a game changer. You cannot prepare for him, he is just so dominant inside. We challenged our guys at halftime to just battle (with him). You cannot jump with him obviously, you just have to try and move him out, get shots up as best you can and not be satisfied with him going over the top of you.We were trying to isolate (D.J. McCall) on the post and get (McElvene) out of there, so we ran a high screen to get him up the floor, but he came back to make the block. Brandon Webb … that is such a typical play for him in the sense that he keeps playing all the time. We tell our guys that good things happen to kids who play hard all the time and now maybe they will believe us a little bit.It has not been lack of effort that we have not attacked zone defenses, we just haven't made shots. Tonight was a testament to playing hard, stepping up and looking to attack.Going into the season I felt like three of our last four games of the season were going to be three of the best opponents we would face this year in Northrop, New Haven and Columbia City, so having that confidence under our belt is great.
