KAMIAH — After the KHS basketball boys polished off their second win over Grangeville of the season, prevailing 53-39 on Monday night, Dec. 19, Kubs coach Aaron Skinner said the team was shorthanded and that their defensive intensity was lacking.
“Some coaches would say, ‘A win is a win,’ but that’s not me,” he said. “We’re still riding on the coattails of what we did last year, but last year we were one of the best teams defensively — 37 points against, per game. Giving up 39 tonight is too many. With Lapwai in our league, we’re going to have to play a lot better defensively than we did tonight. So our practices will get a lot more competitive. We might have to change up our starting lineup, because we have some attitudes in our locker room that we’re a lot better than actually we are right now.”
