High school boys basketball - Cole's Court regional final entry

Tonight we will be playing in the regional championship for the second year in a row. Although most teams would be more than happy getting this far, we feel like we have some unfinished business after last year. Getting that taste of the state championships in Columbus made us all hungrier than ever, the whole city of Mentor included. All year long that has been our goal and where our fans expect us to get to. Like last year, we will be facing another very talented opponent in Garfield Heights. Unlike us, this is their first time making it to regionals so hopefully we can use our experience to our advantage. Although they are a very good team with many great players, we feel like our tough schedule has prepared us well.
At 11:00 today we will be at the high school for a light shoot-around and walk through, followed by a short film session. I have a feeling time will be going by very slow all day long up until game time, because I know the game will be the only thing on my mind. It's weird to think that my high school career is getting closer and closer to its end, a time that I never thought would come. I really just can't wait to get back on that Cleveland State floor again for the last time and play in one of the most anticipated games around the state of Ohio. If we play like we're capable of, I really like our chances of coming out of this game with a W. The only thing that matters after tonight is having that regional medal around my neck as we prepare for our return to Value City Arena.
