Boys’ basketball continues their road to state in the second round of playoffs Friday night as they take on Mount Pleasant at Rockwall High School at 7:30 p.m.

“I’m expecting them to try to speed up our game so if we just stick to the game plan, we should win,” senior Sterling Eubanks said. “I’m expecting to go to state. I want to go the whole way. We have a really tough schedule to get there but I think with our talent on our team and how hard we work I know we can get there.”

Head coach Stephen Friar is confident in their game but knows not to get too far ahead.

“I expect us to come out with a lot of energy, lots of emotion, just excited to play another game,” Friar said. “We are playing a team that gets out and runs a lot so we talked about taking care of the ball; Not turning the ball over. Also just to focusing on doing what we do, we don’t get caught up in what other teams do specifically as far as taking us out of what we do we try to make sure we’re just on honing in on our own skills and make sure we are doing the right thing and our game will be fine.”
