BBK: O'Gorman Ready For Everyone's Best Shot

BBK: O'Gorman Ready For Everyone's Best Shot
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Expectations are high yet again for this years O'Gorman Knights boys basketball team. After capturing their third AA state title in the last five years the Knights are an even deeper team this season and they're not afraid to have the target on their back.

It's something that comes with the territory for good teams in any sport. A big target placed squarely on their backs. As the O'Gorman Knights start their quest for back-to-back state titles, they know each game they'll get the best their opponents have to offer.

"That's how we want it though, we want everyone after us," Senior Forward Cedric Lang said.

"Whether the targets on your back or not you still have to come to play night in and night out," Knights Head Coach Derek Robey said.

As usual, expectations are high for the Knights this season, and why shouldn't they be. They graduated just three players from last years team and first team all-stater Sterling Nielson is one of ten seniors back on the floor this year.

"A couple of years ago we were able to sub 5 at a crack. It wasn't uncommon for us to put another five guys in here. I don't know for sure if we can do that but we're a deep basketball team," Robey said.

Nielsen was near the top of the pack in scoring for most of last season, but this year Robey expects his senior guard to step up on and off the floor.

"He can score and he can find was to score but he doesn't have to have that mentality. He can be very unselfish as well and try to dictate the pace. He's going to be a floor leader for us," Robey said.

And as the Knights get set to open their season, they're goals may be high but they know right now their record is no wins and no losses just like everyone else.

"Obviously before the season it's anyone's game so were just going to give it all we've got," says Senior Guard Sterling Nielson.

A philosophy that has been pretty successful for the defending state champs.

The Knights will open their title defense December 10th against Sturgis.
