Knepp lets it fly as Cougars win

(Continued)

ELNORA —

“We saw Hildebrand was struggling to make free throws,” Ron Knepp said. “It was an intent of ours to be very agressive with her.  If you get the steal you get it, if you put her on the line, then you put her on the line.”

Ron Knepp said despite the struggle offensively, the key to the comeback was the intensity on the defensive end.

“Our defense has been our bread and butter,” Ron Knepp said. “We felt that we could keep them under 30 (points), that’s a goal we had coming into the game. We felt like if we could keep them under 30, we could win the game. We felt we could score more than 30 points, it took 32 full minutes to score 32 points.”

Ron Knepp said that these types of close games are something you can’t simulate during the offseason, and it’s a learning experience to pull them out during the season.

“It’s tough this early in the season for Shoals or us,” Ron Knepp said. “You don’t have these types of games in the summer. In the summer people don’t play alot of defense. When you get into the first part of November, and you start getting defense and coming down to the end of games, that’s alot of pressure. We want to grow from this win.”

North Daviess will welcome Washington (2-2,) today into the Cougar Den. The Hatchets will pose an enormous test to the Cougar defense, which has only allowed an average of 22 points per game this season. Washington has scored 47.8 points per game.

“Is their high powered offense going to be better than our defense,” Ron Knepp said. “We’re going to see if we can keep them in the 30s. We need to keep them in the 30s to make it a game. If they’re up in the 50s, they are going to win that game, if they’re down in the 30s we can make it a game, and if it’s close anything can happen.”
