COACHES QUOTE: “We played well for four quarters. To go into that gym with that excitement and in that atmosphere and come out with a win was good for us. I was very, very proud of our kids. Casey Henry and Dexter Priest did an excellent job of guarding Qualls because that kid is a real good player,” — Vanoss head coach Jason Fulks.

“Dalen really played a good game. He had a man in his face baseline to baseline. We’re basically just going to have some other guys step up and hit some open shots. It’s early and we’re young and we’re just going to have to get better.” — Stratford coach Mark Qualls.
