CH boys close with losses

By The Herald Staff | 2/26/2014

The Central Heights High School boys basketball team closed the regular season with home losses Monday and Tuesday. The Vikings fell 62-35 to Osawatomie and state-ranked Wellsville, 62-35.

“Two games with the same results,” Central Heights coach Rusty Cannady said. “Going into both games we got punched early. We need to be better defensively and control the boards. Offensively we can’t get into a foot race. We need to be patient and work inside out. We are not a team that can come back from a big deficit. And when we give extra possessions and easy transition layups, that makes it hard. We need to stay positive and not let frustration effect our play. We played two extremely good teams that played with a purpose and it showed.”
