“Our defensive effort was great,” Decello said. “We’re trying to match up out of a flat 3-2, and it’s something we’ve just put in the last week. I thought they did real well and started to pick up some of the concepts.”
Up next for Elkhart is the Centerville tournament on Thursday, Dec. 5, and Grapeland will face Crockett on the road on Tuesday.
At halftime, a group of Elkhart children performed a basketball dance and dribbling routine led by Elkhart coach Corinna Smith. The children then collected donations from attendees in the stands to help support the American Heart Association.
Smith was unavailable for comment after the game.
