Wildcats hoops gaining confidence

By Jarann Johnson
Sometimes the struggle bus comes and it’s hard to get out of the vehicle. Center-Stanton’s girls entered last week trying to power through an offensive struggle and the Center-Stanton boys were trying to get off a 7-game losing streak.
Both teams headed to Washburn for a District 10 game early in the week. Neither came away with a win. Center-Stanton’s girls lost a close game by six points, 50-44. Drew Erhardt, Center-Stanton girls head coach, said his team will still suffering from their poor shooting night against New England.
“I think we just had a little hiccup in our confidence level after the 18 percent shooting night on Saturday [vs. New England]. Came into Washburn and we just didn’t look really confident on the floor and we didn’t shoot all that well,” Erhardt said.
“Over there in Washburn we didn’t push the ball in transition enough and didn’t take care of it. Had a couple of 3-4 minute stretches where we’d give them a 6-0 or 8-2 run. I think it was mainly confidence and poor shooting from Saturday night. It took us till Friday to figure out we can still make shots.”
