Kohs, Grippo Weigh In On Quarterfinal Matchup

No. 9 Mercy will look to knock off top-seeded Lauralton Hall tonight at 7:45 p.m. at Berlin.

Mercy coach Tim Kohs’ thoughts on the Keylantra Langley and the Crusaders: “She’s explosive. She’s a great player. She can score in so many ways. She’s a big guard and we don’t have big guards.”

Kohs said it’s a winnable game — if the Tigers can contain Langley, rebound the ball and control Lauralton Hall’s size advantage inside.

No. 9 Morgan will face top-seeded Brookfield in the Class M quarterfinals tonight at 6 p.m. at Middletown.

Huskies coach Joe Grippo’s thoughts on Brookfield: “They’re tough. I heard great things about her (Bobcats high-scoring guard Brittany Martelle). We’ll force others to handle the ball.”

Grippo on Morgan’s run so far: Some people criticize our league (Shoreline Conference), but it’s good basketball. Look at the SCC. All the teams are gone (in Class M). Playing in our league prepared us well for the tournament.”
