Earn shot at OVC tourney trophy Saturday against Meridian
by Keith Stewart
“Fight. Fight for these last eight minutes.”
Chester Reeder didn’t want his team letting St. Teresa slip by–not again. Not in the fourth quarter. Not in the OVC semifinals. Not at all. After seeing their lead diminish in the fourth and eventually losing to the Bulldogs two weeks ago, the Redskins were prepared for a different outcome Thursday night, when they, the no. 5 seed in the OVC tournament, took on the no. 1 seed, and not to mention state ranked St. Teresa Bulldogs and came away with their second straight upset of the tourney, winning 65-58.
“It feels awesome,” said Reeder after the game. “I asked them before we left, ‘Why not us?’ We played with them for three and half quarters last time at their place. You can’t have any doubt. You have to believe in yourself, believe in each other, keep playing, and see what happens.”
