New Mission vs. Millis
Overview - New Mission's double threat of Jazz Laracuente and Deandra Humphries look to be too much for Millis, but after a .500 regular season, the Lady Mohawks are rolling. The key to this game will be controlling transition and keeping New Mission to a half court game. Expect this one to be closer than most people think.
Coaches take - David Fallon, Millis
1. What has been the key to your team's success this season?
Resiliency and hard work. We play in a very tough league with Division 2 and Division 3 teams. We knew that if our kids continued to work hard we could make some noise in the playoffs. Defensively, we have been playing very well in the playoffs. It all starts with defense.
2. What concerns you about New Mission going into the championship game?
Their speed, especially in the open court.
3. Everyone knows about the stars on your team, but who has been the most unheralded player for you this season and why?
Katy Golden. Athletically she is very gifted and is a tough mathcup for other players. She does a lot of little things that don't always show up in the box score.
4. What has been the most enjoyable part of this journey to the state title for you?
The time spent with my players. To see their growth as players and as people has been very fun and rewarding.
Prediction - New Mission by 5
