Simsboro wins Class B State Championship rematch vs Zwolle 59-53. Click on the video above for highlights from the game.
Brad Cesak said, “This one definitely living up to its billing as a repeat of the Class B State Title game every time Simsboro would take lead Zwolle would somehow find a way to claw back into it but ultimately the Tigers had that final run in route to a state championship.
Josh Brown said, “We knew this year it was going to be a thirty two minute game. We really focused at the free throw line in practice because I just had a feeling this year it just may come down to free throws and it payed off. We made the free throws and finished the game.”
Brad McLaren said, “We battled back you know they went on some runs early. I think we showed a lot of composure to battle back and keep fighting. We talk about this all the time we put it on the board in the locker room. Whoever does the little things right is going to win. We didn’t down the stretch.”
Cesak said, “Some good news for the Zwolle fans Dkendrick Pittmon who was their leading scorer this year with over 16 points a game. He’s coming back for one more season as he will be a senior next year, thats a good bet we will see the Zwolle Hawks back here in the state tournament in 2020.”
