Revenge not a factor for Cadets

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 11:18 pm
Concordia Lutheran boy's basketball coach Josh Eggold spoke with The News-Sentinel following his team's win over Bishop Dwenger in the IHSAA Class 3A Sectional 22 on Tuesday at Garrett.

In his words – Concordia head coach Josh Eggold“I don't feel like that just because I feel like they are two different teams this year and last year, and I have a great deal of respect for (Bishop Dwenger) coach Kostoff and what they do at Bishop Dwenger. So, to beat a team that's well-coached is really great, but I do feel like there were makings at times in the first half when things weren't going our way, and I felt like the strides we made in maturity to handle those things that was evident tonight.”"Anytime you're playing with more of a lead you play a little bit looser and you can take more, I guess defensively, make them take long possessions and it won't hurt you as badly. I just felt like the second half we did a good job of ball control and pushing when we needed to and slowing when we needed to.”“I think that's part of when you're playing in the postseason, you're fighting for your life, but with Dwenger, they're tough with physical players. That's one strength that they have and they try and both teams tried not to back down from the other in that way.”“I felt like the extra pass that Thomas (Starks) made to Marq (Rogers) was indicative of that when he (Rogers) got the 3-point shot. (Starks) had an open look as the defender came but it was even more open for Marq. That's been a strength of this team all year. We assist on almost 3/4 of our buckets, which I think is really a great credit to their unselfishness.”“I was glad we got the game in tonight. I wanted to have our legs fresh for Leo as much as possible because they do get up and down and they’re dangerous because they shoot the threes well. They like it up-tempo, they like it a little bit crazy. … We’ve got to stay disciplined when we want to run and defend them in transition.”
