Green Forest looking to improve offensively

Friday, December 18, 2015

The Green Forest basketball teams have been trying to improve offensively this week. Boys coach Brandon Stone said the Tigers are improving, but offensive efficiency is an issue.

"We start speeding up and just get out of control," Stone said. "We are going to take this week to slow down and show the guys what happens when you run the offense."

The Lady Tigers have been turning the ball over too much and coach Kyle Farrar said he hopes to see an improvement in this area.

"We see some good things, for awhile, but when one girl turns the ball over, it's like they all start turning it over," Farrar said.

Farrar said Friday's game against Cotter will be a difficult challenge for the Lady Tigers.

"They will be a lot like Berryville," Farrar said. "So that just gives us a week to fix it. Coach James and I say every day that we are going to keep on working at it and keep on hammering away the things in practice and hopefully it kicks in during a game. It either will or it won't."

Stone said he continues to tell his team to focus on each individual possession during the game.

"It's important that you don't get caught up in the scoreboard," Stone said. "If you run your offense right and you make stops defensively, the score takes care of itself."

Junior high action starts at 5:30 p.m on Friday in Cotter.
