|PC Tigers beat Van Wert|
On Feb. 28, the PC Tigers rolled into Van Wert to take on the Div. I Van Wert team. Coach Holtsberry was concerned about this Van Wert team as he has never beaten this team. But, he felt that the Tigers had to keep the game close in order to have a chance.
Falling behind 12-5 after the first quarter, Holtsberry rallied his team with positive approaches and slowed things down a bit. With the Tigers down 16-9 at halftime, Holtsberry said, “The train is back on the tracks and the wheels are rolling. Hang on, we’re not stopping.”
The third quarter found foul trouble for Ricky Radabaugh as he was taken out to preserve his playing without fouling out. They stayed with Van Wert the best they could, but were still down 26-18 after three quarters. Holtsberry went to a more pressure defense and put Ricky back in to guard Mark Ganger, Van Wert’s top scorer and biggest man.
