(I told them we should) just prepare ourselves the best as we can, and not get caught up in it being such a big game. This is just a basketball game. We are just trying to keep it simple right now.
It was a big win for our community. We had great fan support. They were excited.
We`ve been talking about state all year long like every team in the state of Texas. But with this group here, we try to really, really tell them that they`ve got a chance for it.
We`ve been down before, but these guys have a lot of confidence in themselves and what we`re trying to do. We know that we can make some stops and we can score. I don`t think anybody was really panicked.
We started slowly, but then began to put things together. We were 3-9 to begin the year, but we have gone 9-4 the rest of the way.
It was the craziest thing I`ve ever seen. You like to see two teams compete like that, but you like to see your team execute better down the stretch. Give credit to Chapel Hill, they made a great 3-point shot to get us into overtime, and I wasn`t sure how we were going to pull it out. We had people on both sides fouling out of the game, but we hung in there and somehow pulled this out.
He didn`t have one of his better games tonight. Once he learns to settle down and let the game come to him, he`ll be a lot better.
The kids are excited. I`m hoping we have two more games left in us.
We beat the No. 4, No. 1 and then the No. 2 seed to win the state title. The girls played amazing basketball all week.
Charles is a great player. He`d start for most everybody. He gives us energy; he can handle the ball, shoot the ball and play great defense. He`s strong, he can take the ball inside if he has to.
