And Friday’s win may have been the confidence boost the T-Wolves were looking for.
“It’s essentially meaningless as far as playoffs, but it’s still a big game,” senior Blake Knighton said before North upset NHS 52-49.
Knighton was optimistic that a win over NHS would springboard North into the postseason, and the T-Wolves will try tonight to carry that momentum into tonight’s contest.
While North’s promising young roster will be fighting to make a run in what is the first postseason for many of its players, a senior-laden NHS squad will be in Edmond to try and upset Edmond North.
While the Huskies are heavily favored, NHS coach Matt Thornton likes the matchup.
“The way we match up with them and how they play defense, they’ll give us wide-open shots on the outside,” he said. “We just have to hit them. We got the seed and the matchup we wanted and I like our chances. We just have to come out and perform.”
