Tuesdays word of the day, brought to you by the head basketball coaches at Marmaton Valley High School: execution.
Heres girls head coach Sherri Bagwell minutes after her team fell 36-27 to the Vikings of Northeast High: We didnt execute tonight. It goes back to what we needed to work on after that first game, which is and I know I sound like a broken record offensive and defensive execution. We just need to slow it down.
Boys head coach Jason Bauer, whose squad was run over by the visiting Vikings, 72-46, was thumping the same drum: We just didnt execute early on and we dug ourselves a hole. When we slow things down and run through our offense and we dont try to beat the press with the dribble, were a lot better.
