On West, "It all starts with Tolbert (Isaac) and we he gets cooking they are really, really tough. They a had a lot of kids miss the last couple of weeks and I expect them to be back. West is a much improved team and with a metro game, you throw out the records. It will be a real good battle."
Quoting West coach Lonnie Moore: On getting healthy, "We were without five starters last week and we should have most everybody back. A lot of kids got experience the last two weeks and that is good."
On what his team needs to do," We got to execute. We got to get better at that. Cedar Falls will execute what they do and will have a good game plan and will stick to it. We have dug ourselves a big hole with our two first district games and we're excited to go prove ourselves."
