Bruins controlled pace of game

Northrop High School boy's basketball coach Barak Coolman spoke with The News-Sentinel following his team's victory over North Side at the IHSAA Cass 4A Sectional at Carroll on Friday."I was pleased with our effort. We played good defense. We had a couple breakdowns, but we were able to keep our composure and regain things and get a big victory. I was pleased with our poise, we showed a lot of poise, didn’t let things get under our skin and were able to control the game tempo and speed wise.""Once we got a lead we did a good job playing with a lead. That is something we have struggled with a couple times this season and have had some losses earlier this yearr because we didn’t play well with the lead. It is great to see as a coach the learning process and maturation that they got better.""Our defense created our offense for us. We got some run-outs, we got some stops and deflections and were able to run downhill, get to the rim and kick out and hit some good, open shots. We played really unselfishly during that (17-1 run) and that was key for us.""They were shooting extremely well, that’s why they had a nine-game win streak and so to be able to not give them uncontested shots, we felt like we could handle their speed and be able to stay in front of them for the most part. They are really good, Dwight (Richards) did a good job penetrating and getting to the basket. We made it tougher on them (outside)."
