    “They are extremely athletic - about 6-2 across the board with a couple of 6-4 guys in the back end of their press. They will trap you from the opening tip. They want to create as much chaos and shot attempts as possible for themselves.  They are quick at the guard with the 3 returning starters who are all skilled and can shoot the 3,” said Jeremy Josey, Sulphur Springs head boys basketball coach
    The coach added, “We need to attack their press with the pass not the dribble and finish inside. The whole theme of Tuesday's game is to value every possession and finish each possession with points.”
    NOTE TO FANs -tonight’s game is a “Blue out game” all Sulphur Springs fans are urged to wear blue to the game.
