Logan squads face Richmond

Cass travels to Northwestern; Winamac visits Tri-County

The bad stretch of winter weather has this weekend’s games again in jeopardy.

Logansport has already moved its contests with Richmond to Saturday afternoon. The boys game is at the Berry Bowl and the girls game is at Richmond. The junior varsity games get underway at noon followed by the varsity at 1:30 p.m.

The Logan boys are coming off a 98-64 humbling at Marion last weekend. It doesn’t get any easier for the Berries (8-2, 0-2 North Central Conference) on Saturday, as they host another NCC heavyweight in Richmond (10-1, 2-0).

“While Richmond doesn’t have Marion’s offensive firepower, they are an extremely athletic team and a very, very good defensive team,” Logan coach Pat Skaggs said. “They will utilize a lot of pressure and trapping defenses and it’ll be another real challenge for us.”

Skaggs is looking for his squad to cut down on its turnovers. He said they had 18 to 20 turnovers in the Marion loss.

“There are a lot of things for us to improve on,” he said. “I think it was a good learning lesson for us to play a team of that caliber. Obviously we have to play better defense but the biggest thing is we have to play a little smarter and understand what tempo we want to try to play. I think back to the Anderson game and then the Marion game and I don’t think we had the tempo to our liking in either game. We need to dictate the tempo a little more. On the other hand, that’s a little easier said than done.

“Richmond is a team that appears on film even presses after missed shots. We have to be ready at all times. They pressure fullcourt, three-quarters, halfcourt.”

Mike Tillman leads Richmond’s scorers with 16.8 points per game. Joel Okafor averages 9.6 and Davious Webster 8.8. Okafor, a 5-11 junior point guard, has several mid-major offers.
