Rebounding key to Tiger chances
Mar 12, 2013 10:50 pm
Watertown faces athletic Lake County
By Andy Reed
When Pat Riley was coaching the Los Angeles Lakers to four NBA championships in the 1980s, he used to have a saying, "No rebounds, no rings".
Rebounds will be a key statistic Watertown coach Matt Bradshaw watches when his 30-3 Purple Tigers play their first ever BlueCross Basketball Championships against Lake County at 5 p.m. today at Middle Tennessee State's Murphy Center in Murfreesboro.
Lake County is Watertown's opponent. And while the Falcons' 8-23 season has been in part the result of forfeits and suspensions, they are coming off a state semifinal appearance last year and a Class A championship two years ago.
"They have quite a few of their guys returning from last year's team," Watertown coach Matt Bradshaw said of the Falcons. "Very quick and athletic."
