Princeton Tiger

PRINCETON — The Princeton Senior High School boys’ basketball team looks to shake its three-game skid.

Over the past two weeks the PSHS boys’ basketball team knew they were headed for a tough stretch. They took on teams like Greenbrier East High School, Graham High School and Bluefield High School those teams are very competitive all the way around and the Tigers knew they would have to be at their best if they were going to be able to get the best outcome.

Princeton went on to lose to those three teams and now that they are in the midst of a skid coach Robb Williams believes the team has what it takes to shake out of it.

“We have been pretty banged up these last couple of games,” Williams said. “It has forced us to change our team approached during that time but there are some things we need to work on and get back to that we feel like will put us right back on track.”

Princeton’s offense is predicated on ball movement and player movement. Some may think the Tigers may have gotten a little one-on-one dominant over that stretch and those are some things the Tigers want to tweak a bit.

“I think for us it’s all about getting back to team ball,” Williams said. “When we have done that, we have beaten some pretty good teams. We beat Bluefield earlier on in the season played very good team ball. We are feeling good about getting back to full strength and just getting back to the things that have made us successful.”

With about a month left in the season the Tigers want to find ways to continue to build momentum so they can finish the season on a strong note as they head into the postseason.

The Tigers head into a six-game home stretch this week. They faced the PikeView Panthers on Thursday, game scores were unavailable by press time. Home games against Mercer Christian, Bland, Oak Hill, Graham, and Greenbrier East before they hit the road again against Capital High on Feb. 12.
