Knights Off To A Solid Start

January 2, 2014, 10:59 PM

Knights Off To A Solid Start
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The O’Gorman boys basketball team is rolling this season, averaging nearly 60 points per contest. However, the Knight's know it's a long season, and much work still needs to be done. OGorman Head coach Derek Robey is ready for the challenge ahead.

"It’s such a long season and such a grind. We look at our month of January, and this could make or break us. We have a couple really tough weeks coming up. Even though we’re 4 and 1, and sitting where we want to be sitting now, it’s a long haul. Like I said it’s a grind, so we well see what happens," said Robey.

The month ahead for the knights includes a trip to Rapid City to take on Central and Stevens, as well as a matchup with Bobcats of Brookings. O’Gorman senior Spencer Hopkins say that’s the bond and continuity between teammates will be crucial moving forward.

"My teammates, we’re a family. We rally around each other, and we build off each other during the game. Our success is from every player, even the players on the bench – they play a major role in the game too," said Hopkins.

Currently ranked 5th in our KELOland High school basketball poll, the Knights are a veteran team with five seniors on the roster. Robey says that although it’s important to simply focus on improving everyday, the end goal for O’Gorman is still the same.

"Last year we stayed away from the state tournament, and it leaves you with that bad taste in your mouth. We approach the season trying to win each and every game, game in and game out, try to progress and get better, and hopefully come march we are playing are best basketball and hopefully we get a shot of being in the tournament," said Robey.

Three-time defending state champions, O’Gorman certainly has a shot.
