BBK: Sioux Valley's Father Son Formula

BBK: Sioux Valley's Father Son Formula

The Cossacks have somehow flown under the radar this season and put together a 12-0 record. Sioux Valley's recipe for success is all about the family connection.

Since he was in 7th grade Tayt Vincent has been suiting up for the Sioux Valley varsity basketball team. Now a freshman he is leading his second ranked Cossacks with 16 points and 7 rebounds a game, he also leads them in assists as well. His dad, also the head coach, says it's the trust his teammates have put in his son that makes him succeed.

"He has just continued to grow every season. I think that has come from the kids that around him and the challenges that they have for the program. It's definitely a situation where we have a lot of kids sharing the wealth and that's neat to see," Sioux Valley Boy's Head coach Bill Vincent said.

"The two years have really helped me get into the flow and know how to play. My teammates have really helped me out and we have been working together in the gym a lot," Cossacks Freshman Guard Tayt Vincent said.

You may think that Tayt gets special treatment with his dad running the show. Bill often uses Tayt as an example and it has brought out the best in players such as Spencer Hanson and Collin Kramer who don't mind their leader being a freshman.

"He knows there is a lot of tough love and that we are going to get on his case. Sometimes we send the message through him to some of the other athletes as well," Bill Vincent said.

"That happens a little bit, but when he gives it to the other guys they are ready to take it too. We all want to improve, get better, and play as a team, "Tayt Vincent said.

The Cossacks have played only two games at home this season and have just four remaining in Volga. However having your dad as the coach has its perks for both Tayt and his unbeaten friends when they are home and the gym is closed.

"Yeah, he is able to get me into the gym whenever I want. He is always pushing me to put in the extra time. We are setting small goals for ourselves and taking it one game at a time," Tayt Vincent said.

The Cossacks are knocking off their opponents by an average fo 30 points per game. They improved to 13-0 tonight with their 48 To 39 Win at De Smet.
