Morgan Park won back-to-back Illinois Class 3A state titles over the weekend thanks to a comeback 59-49 victory against the Lincoln Railsplitters.
Below are some selected highlights from class of 2014 Indiana recruiting target Josh Cunningham.
The 6-foot-7 forward scored 13 points and grabbed nine boards in his team’s victory, despite not playing the entire second quarter due to foul trouble. Cunningham also saw triple teams from time to time, as the Railsplitters paid him plenty of attention down low in their 1-2-2 zone.
Tom Crean, Yogi Ferrell and Will Sheehey met with the media following Indiana’s 64-54 loss to Illinois in the opening round of the Big Ten tournament on Thursday afternoon at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
Watch their postgame comments and read a full transcript below:
Q. You guys got it going from the three-point line in the first half, missed the last 11. Did they come out on you more? What changed the rest of the game?
WILL SHEEHEY: The ones in the first half kind of came off movement and penetration. The second half we didn’t necessarily get the same penetration and movement that we did the first half.
Q. I’ll ask both of you, the zones seemed to give you some troubles. Was that a big factor in the game for you? You came out the second half really penetrating and they went to the zone. There must have been a reason for it.
YOGI FERRELL: We needed to move the ball more, still kind of play inside and out. But we didn’t do that the second half.
WILL SHEEHEY: I think we had some sets where we actually did have some pretty good movement within the zone but it wasn’t on a consistent basis.
