Senior goes on offensive late in game

Friday, February 28, 2014 01:30 am
New Haven and Wayne played a game that felt like the postseason. The Bulldogs won their final game of the regular season 65-62 and senior guard Jordan Hogue spoke with reporters following the game:"You know we always talk about focus and mental toughness, things he (head coach Al Gooden) writes on the board before games and during practice we shoot free throws at the beginning and the end, when we are fresh and when we are tired so we know when it gets down to crunch time we need to make those free throws and we can.""You know, I usually don't score much, usually the distributor but my team needed me to take over a little. So, I accepted that role and did what I had to do.""We want to see where we can peak at, play our best with everyone playing their best as we know we can, believing in each other and playing as a team and seeing how far we can get.""Defense, defense and rebounding. They (Wayne) got a lot of offensive rebounds first and second half off the free throw line, and we know we just have to box out, stay strong and get that rebound, and defense going to be tough. You know, big part of the sectional run, tournament run, go as far as we want is going to take defense and that's going to be a tough thing.""It got really intense in the fourth quarter; got like two minutes (left) and felt like a sectional championship game. The crowd was getting into it, everyone else was getting into it. It was wild.""Not playing down to our competition (is important for sectionals). We want to play our game, our style and not play down to our opponents and let them stay in the game. We know we can push the tempo and play within Steve (McElvene), inside-outside game and that's going to be

big for us not playing down to our opponents."
