Tonawanda News —
Hughes gave credit to the Eagles after the game, and said they simply took the Warriors out of their game.
"They overplayed our passing lanes and we really didn't headhunt on screens or rub off them real strong. I think we started to play a little timid. They're a really good defensive team. Sometimes it's not what you run, but if you have another scoring threat — right now it's tough. Some of the guys have to step up a bit and score for us."
Ben Stich finished with seven points, five rebounds and four assists and pressured Cleve Hill guards all game. Hughes said the team played well defensively and its work ethic and dedication on that end of the floor was outstanding. Now he's looking for more players to step up offensively and make a few shots.
Cleve Hill's Jordan Parker scored a team-high 17 points and Rayshawn Smalls added 10 in the win for the Eagles.
