Under new head coach Mark Hanks, or is that the old head coach Mark Hanks, the Cougars entertained Abingdon Wednesday morning.
Good play. bad play, and ugly play was all shown by the Cougars.
” We played to fast at times and our ball handling wasn’t good either,” said Coach Hanks.
Abingdon pressed the Cougars the majority of time and Pulaski County hadn’t practiced on their full court offense yet.
Coach Hanks said, ” The press bothered us, but our effort was fairly good. We split a a couple of quarters with them, we won a couple and lost a couple.”
He continued by saying, ” I thought Dotson (Tyler), Mattox (Lonnie), along with Phoenix Ramsey and Carter Brookman played well at times.”
The Abingdon Falcons had a couple of 6′ 5″ post players and a sophomore guard that will be assets and tough players for the team when they battle in their Southwest District
“Defensively we played in spells and its been slow going for us,” Coach Hanks remarked.
Hanks has returned to the Cougar sideline after a two-year absence as he became the athletic/activities director for Pulaski County.
He is now acting as head coach and athletic director at PCHS.
Hanks said, “We got everybody some action in this scrimmage and got to look at them against other players.”
The Pulaski County at Radford basketball game which was scheduled for Friday, Dec. 2, has been postponed to a later date, which is to be announced.
