Spartan coach 'excited' for post-season play

Saturday, February 16, 2013 12:54 am
Homestead boys basketball coach Chris Johnson spoke with The News-Sentinel following the Spartans' victory over Snider on Friday.“Well, we wanted ot mix it up a little bit. I thought they were very quick. When we went to man a little bit they were able to get to the basket more than what I was hoping for them to get. So, we went into a 2-3 and a 3-2 zone just to try to make them shoot some jump shots. First half, they were hitting a lot of shots, but I thought our defense got a little bit better the second half, and we were able to pull away.“(I) know we are going to shoot the basketball. We want to get up and down with teams but the problem is we want teams to defend a little bit. We don’t want to get into the run-and-gun with them, we want to take high percentage shots.”“Well, we needed to get the lead, I thought. Most of the game we had that lead and they took a one or two points lead, and we took it back right away but overall I was pleased the way our kids played. Offensively, I’m not concerned. It’s a matter of if we can stop people. I thought we did a lot better in the second half of finding the shooters than we did in the first half.”“We got a good group of kids. I’m excited. … We’ve got to better on the defensive end still, I think we give up way too many points, but hopefully we’ve got a week to get ourselves better before we play that sectional.”
