Comments from SG Storm Coach Evan Fancourt….
Coach Evan Fancourt said the reason Southern Guilford won was due to the pace of the game…”We kept up the defensive pressure and that dictated the ‘pace of the game” to our advantage”….

Expectations for the next round on Thursday…”We will see and feel a ‘sense of urgency’…In Round One there is such a quick turn-around from last week’s conference tournament, and you don’t have much time to dwell on the one game, you just play the Round One ball game and roll….For Thursday game, you start to feel some of the urgency of what this tournament is all about”…..

The Balance we see in your team these days…It used to be almost like a two-man game of Dearman and Burch…Now you have those two and McMaster and Cooper and everybody dealing out there…Coach Fancourt said, “The key is balance, get everybody involved and get each other baskets”……

Is the Southern Guilford court a regulation-size high school basketball court??? You make it look like it is Middle School court, the way your team plays defense out there…”We get up there quick on defense”…”We have to be active off of the ball, and force the opposition to make tough decisions”….”We are a very unselfish team and we work together to get up in those passing lanes quick on defense, work to get the steal and then finish on the offensive end, in transition”…

Coach Fancourt also told us the young man that suffered the concussion a few weeks back at Eastern Guilford, Brandon Ruffin, is back and full strength now for the SG Storm….Tom Palumbo, Guilford College Quakers head coach, and Ronnie Thomas, the Quakers top assistant, were the game tonight checking out the SG Storm…..
