Total team effort gives Tigers edge over T-Wolves



“Every time you win, it’s another 365 days of bragging rights,” Parker said.

He’s right about that, just don’t expect the Tigers to exercise the privilege. They’ve got a season to play and they’re convinced they’re going places and, really, why wouldn’t they be?

“If we’re going to be a state title contender …,” Nation said to his players as they knelt before him, a moment after picking up the Harkness Trophy that annually goes to the Clash champ.

How he finished the sentence hardly mattered. After his players made their point, he’d made his. He had their attention and they were buying every word.

They’d earned the right.
