But Kannady-Sayes doesn’t want her team to look at the records or the scores of the previous matchups. She wants her unit to get back to what made it successful in the regular season. That was a frenetic defense, a strong low-post game in Serithia Hawkins and Kyeria Hannah and Tucker coming up with clutch shots.
“I don’t think we need to bring any type of attitude,” Kannady-Sayes said. “We just need to go in and take care of business and execute what we came to do. We just need to go in and play Southmoore basketball. Everything else will take care of itself.”
If they don’t, the SaberCats know their quest of making it to the program’s first-ever state tournament will have come to an end.
“Hopefully we are focused and prepared and ready to play with fire,” Kannady-Sayes said. “And fight because we know exactly what’s at stake. It’s win or go home at this point.”
