Dan River Basketball - ABC 13 Team of the Week


Ringgold - Today's ABC 13 high school Team of the Week is the undefeated Dan River basketball team.  The Wildcats ran their record to 24-and-0 Saturday night in Salem, beating Brunswick to advance to this Saturday night's state title game in Richmond against Bruton out of Williamsburg. Head Coach Kenny Murphy said for the Wildcat boys to win their first state title in school history, conditioning will be a main priority this week.

Kenny Murphy, DAN RIVER HEAD COACH, said "That's our ammo.  We rebound, we run, and getting guys out on the wing like Ethan, getting their shots up and everything else.  So it's gonna take just a little bit more conditioning just to keep our legs underneath us 'cause I don't know if Bruton has seen a team like Dan River the way we push the ball up the floor.  So they better be just as conditioned as we are because it's gonna be a battle."

Tremaine Edmunds, DAN RIVER JUNIOR FORWARD, said "We need to all practice hard.  We need to go 110 percent, that's what it's gonna take.  You know at practice we've got to act like that's the game right there, we've all got to practice hard and make each other better."

Ethan Driskill, DAN RIVER SENIOR FORWARD, said "We just go into every game thinking, you know, this is the only game that we've played this season.  This is the one game that matters for us."
