The Rams came out on top 91-84 last Friday in an away game against the Ohlone Renegades,

after Coach Labagh stated earlier in the week that it would be a chal- lenge to beat Ohlone on their home

Prior to the game, Coach Labagh emphasized how important it was going to be to perform at

the same level throughout the duration of the game.

“We have to stay aggressive over the entire 40 minutes, we’re usually okay for a good 15 minutes and

that’s not going to be enough.”

A few players attributed the win to smart execution on the court.

“We just played tough and made big plays down the stretch when we needed to,” said Sophomore

forward Julian Herrell. “also really good rebounding.”

The Rams are on a three game win streak, and have acknowledged how much better they have

been playing as a team.

“We’re playing a lot better as a (team) because we’re starting to figure out who can do what on

offense and defense.” Said Team Captain Vincent Golson.

The team believes they have found their footing since the begin- ning of the season after being

faced with injuries and tough losses.

“I think it really just comes with the season,” said Herell on the improvements, “we’ve played a

lot of games, went through a lot of challenges and lost a lot of close games where we had to come

together and figure out what we needed to do to fix things.”

The Rams now hold a confer- ence record of 7-3 with two games left in the regular season.

“For a good playoff run we have to follow our game plan according to every team, because every game plan is different depending on what player plays what.” Golson added.

With Regionals approaching, Coach Labagh is now conducting more frequent practices in the

gymnasium during the week.
