Most coaches can find a flaw in even the best of performances, which is why they love film sessions so much.
The challenge for Ken Grisdale when he watches film of the Poland Bulldogs’ 57-40 win over the Warren G. Harding Raiders is to find something the Bulldogs did wrong. It was a thumbs-up performance from start to finish in the All-American Conference basketball game Tuesday night.
The Bulldogs (2-0) were at their best in forcing the Raiders into nine turnovers in the first quarter. Poland, conversely, turned the ball over only once in the quarter on its way to an 18-7 lead.
“The other night we had 21 [turnovers] in the game,” Grisdale said of a 73-49 win over Liberty. “We talked a lot about how we had to slow ourselves down and really take care of the ball.
The All-American Conference is an OHSAA-sanctioned league, created in 2008 as the result of the merger between the Trumbull Athletic Conference and the Metro Athletic Conference in Ohio.
