The defensive gameplan was to create some disruption for their team.


Jevonte turner, a kid who's averaging 26 points a game, we wanted to really pick him early and make sure he knew we were there for the first 50 foot the floor.

And then really focus on what we call our 50-red.

Our halfcourt man-to-man defense and getting in the passing lanes, getting deflections.

Things of that nature."
