AMHERST – The 2011 Sifto-Jim Hatheway Ford Basketball Invitational Classic is underway at Amherst Regional High School. The tournament started today and continues tomorrow.
The Vikings were eliminated from top three contention when they were defeated Thursday by CP Allen, 75 – 59.
Matt Gamblin, head coach of the team, felt the squad performed well defensively and rebounded well, but mental toughness and getting the ball inside on offense, to bigger players, were things to work on.
The coach was impressed with the involvement of player parents in helping with the tournament.
“They’re very supportive,” he said.
He was generally pleased with the quality of the games to that point. Most had been pretty competitive, he said.
