With the squads all fairly evenly matched, Del Norte High boys varsity basketball coach Scott Alexander said there is no such thing as an easy game during the conference season, which begins for the Warriors tonight against Eureka at home.
“It’s a pretty level playing field,” he said. “We need to play at a high level every night and we need to be focused.”
Alexander, in his first year as head coach of the Warriors, which are 6-4 overall, said keys for the team during Big 5 play are to be tough and aggressive on defense, keep down silly errors, play smart on offense and receive consistency from the bench.
