Published 12:02 am Friday, January 7, 2011

Straughn and Ashford will square off in area action tonight, as the Yellow Jackets pay a visit to the Jungle.

The Tigers are coming off a 62-26 loss to rival Andalusia Tuesday, and will be facing an Ashford team that is 14-5 on the season.

SHS boys coach Rusty Andrews said he knows that Ashford will bring a lot of “size” to the table.

“All I know about them is that they’re very big,” Andrews said. “We’re going to have to play a methodical, slow-down game to have a chance.”

Andrews said rebounding and limiting possessions are the two main keys.

“We’re just going to have to do a better job rebounding offensively and defensively, and take care of the ball,” he said.

Additionally, Andrews said it will take a “total team effort” to be able to pull out a win.

Tip off tonight in Straughn is around 7 p.m.
