WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - Last year Whitley County went 10-21 overall, and are currently 7-5 this season.
They are looking to get back to where Whitley County has been before. The players say they are making improvements but in specific, head coach Jerry Overbey says that the team has three non-negotiables that they are using practice in order to get there.
"Just becoming more of a team, becoming more of a unit. Try to improve on some of the things that we struggled with last year," said senior Tyler Lawson.
"A few basic things like rebounding, just working on things that will lose you games if you're not careful," said senior Devin Bowling.
"We set out at the beginning of the season three non-negotiable things that we have to work on to help this team advance to where we have in the past and that's communication, rebounding and no middle drives, that's our three non-negotiables we play with in practice," said Overbey. "It's getting there, gradually, I've always heard that a good defensive team is a team that talks and a bad defensive team is opposite so we are gradually making baby steps toward that goal but we've got to continue to get there."
