MT. VERNON —
“We're searching for two or three replacements there for next year that left us,” Lonnon said. “Basically the kids who are going to be replacing the graduating seniors are going to be kids who probably have not played a lot of varsity basketball.”
The summer also allows players a chance to build chemistry. Athletes spend hours traveling to league and tournament games in addition to the time they spend between games. The extra hours together gives them time to build a bond that can strengthen during the challenging winter months of the regular season.
“They spend a lot of time at these summer things just in dead time with each other,” Lonnon said. “I always thought that it was pretty important to be a good team on the floor you also have to be good with each other off it.”
The Lady Rams wrap up their summer tournaments in Greenville July 10-11 with six games.
