PREP BASKETBALL

Greenway 57

Prescott boys 45


A low-scoring first period for the D-II No. 8-ranked Badgers and a high-scoring fourth quarter for the D-II No. 10 Demons made the difference Tuesday night at the PHS Dome.

Prescott got out to just seven points after one quarter, and Greenway closed strongly with a 19-point final quarter.

"We struggled rebounding the basketball, which led to them getting second- and third-chances on the offensive end of the third quarter where they pushed out a bit, and we struggled at the free-throw line," summed up PHS head coach Adam Neely, whose club missed eight of 13 free-throw attempts.

Senior Jaran Hoover was the Badgers' high-points man with 13 points. Junior Keyshawn Liggins added eight points, and junior Cameron Gilbert pulled down seven rebounds and blocked three shots in the paint.

Prescott hangs tough at 17-6 overall and 13-2 in power point games. The Badgers are home again this Thursday for a 7 p.m. tip with Flagstaff.

There is nothing to say about this program that is good unfortunately... when you let players steal from restaurants on road trips, your program is sorry. Sitting out 1 pratice and 1 game for for such an offense is a joke. We need leaders for these kids.

Why dont you people get out there and coach the players? Its not as easy as it looks. He dedicates a bunch of time into this team. He cares about every kid. Be a man and sign your name. They have had a great season.

Don't bag on a player because he is doing what the coach asks him to do!!! The problem with feeding the 6'10 player is the the feed is too late or is telegraphed and the opposition reads it. And yes, he probably should dribble a little less. And I hope you are using the term good shooters losely! You have shooters (who miss A LOT), but I wouldn't call them good! If you watch this team you have quite a few "me" players and too many coaches in the stands (which I'm sure you are one of them)! And don't forget about the turnovers in this game. They were many from plenty!!

This is for sure the coaches fault! He is all about himself and really has no idea how to coach. Watch his team and you can see this. Last night his 6'10 kid caught the ball in the paint a dozen or more times and went to the dribble every single time. Come on coach. He has some great shooters and runs a no screen offense. Come on coach. His guards don't hi the open man. His whole coaching strategy is get it to the post get it to the post. His post play sucks and he has no idea how to fix it. Come on coach ask for help stop thinking you're something special because you're the varsity head coach and earn the title "coach". Get a clue.

This lost is really on Coach Neely, come on coach you just got out coached. You have way to many talented players and you don't know how to use it. Sorry Coach but it is time for you to check your ego. This is not all about you, it is about your players. Time to put them before yourself. Badgers should have won this game. Just don't get it.Thoughts and prayers are for all those boys on that team, cause with a coach like this one, they need them.
