MINERAL WELLS —
“My guys are resilient, and they never quit for one second,” Pappas said. “No matter what the score is these guys are going to play hard, and I can’t ask any more out of them as far as effort.
“We just got to keep working to get better handling the ball and handling pressure. We have to learn to defend. We are not athletic enough to play man on them, but when we went zone they lit us up from the three-point line.
“The kids did what we asked them to do defensively, but Kennedale shot the ball lights out.”
In sub-varsity action, the Rams junior varsity fell, 67-53, but the freshmen won, 48-43.
