Thoughts on the Warriors' win over Hancock from Wheaton-Herman-Norcross boys basketball coach Corey Spilde

Thanks to Jim Smoger of the Wheaton Gazette for providing these action shots from Thursday night's W-H/N vs. Hancock game.

A Herman-Hoffman Tribune exclusive interview with Wheaton/Herman-Norcross boys basketball coach Corey Spilde:

"We played pretty well throughout the whole game. We held one of the best scorers in Western Minnesota Brendan Foss to 13 points, 12 below his average. We played pretty good team defense, making Hancock shoot 6/29 from the 3-point line. We also dominated the boards 41-20, which gave us a the opportunity to slow their transition game. Thomas Pederson and Riley Wilson both had double-doubles for us. Thomas had 20 and 10, while Riley was 10 and 13 rebounds respectively. We are by far playing our best basketball right now. BBE (Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa) will be a huge challenge to us, but I think size wise we should at least be close to matching up with them. Our teams have two completely different styles of playing. I guess the team that can control the tempo will have the advantage."
