Esko boys basketball coach Derek Anderson on his team, which begins Section 7AA tournament play in a first-round home game next week against a yet-to-be-determined opponent – "I think we need to cut down on our turnovers, box out, and move the ball as a team. If we do those things we should have a good chance of extending our season. We also need to focus on staying engaged for an entire game and getting locked in on the defensive end. We are looking forward to the playoffs."
