West Forsyth Titans
West Forsyth seeks to unleash wrath
in Lash/Chronicle Tournament
BY TIMOTHY RAMSEY
Because of the football playoffs the
West Forsyth basketball team got off to a
late start. They also had the misfortune of
having little practice time before tipping off
their first game of the year.
The Titans are opening up the season
with a game against Southwest Guilford,
who were undefeated at the time and fell by
two points. Head coach Jeffrey Williams
says he was pleased with his teams per
formance their first time out. The next
night they took on Winston-Salem Prep and
defeated them by 10.
"I definitely like the conditioning our
kids showed up with so we were able to run
well in our first two games," Williams said.
"The individual skill level is high on this
team but we still have to work on our team
based concepts on offense and defense."
Williams stated that he can see the pro
gression of his players as they practice
more and more. He says they feel confi
dent against any team they will face in the
"1 have high expectations for us. Our
guys at this point are getting better every
day," Williams said of his team during the
Lash-Chronicle tournament. "The fact that
we were able to keep up with Southwest
and Prep tells me that if we get our stuff
together we can play with any of the teams
we will see in the tournament."
As freshmen Lamont McNeill and
Jerron Scott are expected to have excellent
years. Williams says he has high hopes for
returning player Thomas Laws at the point.
He said he feel fortunate to have so much
depth on his team and that any one of his
players can step up and have a big game.
When asked what would constitute a
successful season for him Williams simply
said, "making our kids better at the end of
the season than they were at the start."
