Coach told team 'it was winning time'

Thursday, February 28, 2013 08:47 am
DeKalb High School boy's basketball coach Jon Everingham spoke with The News-Sentinel following his team's victory over Snider in the IHSAA Class 4A Sectional 5 at Carroll on Wednesday.I told the boys with three and a half minutes to go and told them it was winning time. I think we were up two points and we knew they were starting to trap us. We have been saying we are built to win and when we get into the situation where we had to win the game that’s exactly what we did. We knocked down some huge free throws.We work really hard at what we do … when you only turn the ball over five times you really don’t beat yourself. Snider had the ability to make some plays down the stretch – they missed a layup to tie the game – but when you take care of the basketball and you play defense like we do … Snider didn’t get anything easy tonight.I have a lot of respect for Coach Chris Benedict and his program. They are veteran players, much like we have veteran players. It seems like we have had the same team 3-4 years and we have been battling it out. I think it is going to be a good game, but I am telling you right now, we are going to have to play well just to keep that game close because they are very talented.You want to play on Friday and Saturday nights in sectionals in Indiana. We got past the first step, now it just gets more difficult. If anybody is thinking about coming to sectionals, it is going to be an absolute dogfight (Friday). The SAC powerhouses in Northrop and North (Side) battling it out on one side, then two teams that competed for a conference championship in us and Columbia City. I think you will see two different styles, but you’ll see four teams that are really good.
