WELLSBORO, PENNSYLVANIA - This week, the Hornets found something that could keep them from a win; a break.
After a 13-1 record through the early portion of their schedule, Wellsboro spent the week long break improving.
Looking at their record, few would think there's much to improve on, but the Hornets are their own biggest critics. Coach Outman said at the begining of the season that their goal was a playoff run. The Hornets regular season success hasn't always carried over to the playoffs. The past few seasons, Wellsboro has been one and done, which is why they're taking a one-game-at-a-time approach.
The Green Machine's offense runs through it's senior leadership. Matt Reece sets the pace at guard, and Jordan Jackson's ability to score from anywhere on the floor allow the Hornets to stay ahead of the competition. But with seven days in between games, Wellsboro is addressing areas that will make them stronger down the final stretch.
Shut down defense is at the top of their list, as the Hornets have experienced spirts, where they've allowed opponents to get back into games. Wellsboro knows this has to change as the season creeps gloser to the playoffs.
