Big plays/Big performances:
Overall thoughts:Our team averages 18 assists per game and we are difficult to defend because we have balanced scoring with 5 players averaging double figures in scoring. We have good depth with 9 guys getting playing time each game. We are athletic and force an average of 17 turnovers per game. We are currently ranked 7 AAAA.
Current record and conference standing: 13-2, 9-1.
Thoughts on next opponent: We play Park Center on Tuesday, which will be a challenging game on the road. Hopefully that sets up a game for first place with Champlin at home on Friday Jan. 24.
