MICDS coach Scott Small has some decisions to make. He’s both the principal and head basketball coach at the school in Ladue. The double task just might be too daunting to continue on indefinitely.
Obviously, Small is not thinking about any future decisions right now. He does have two outstanding assistants Erica Moore and Bill Goedeker who could take over without missing a heart beat.
Saturday night, all eyes were on the Lady Rams who dismantled rival John Burroughs 37-23. Even in victory, Small and his staff felt there was plenty of room for improvement.
“It was OK. I wished we would have made more shots,” said Small. Goedeker said “Sometime you just win playing ugly.”
There were lots of missed shots and lots of missed opportunities. The Lady Rams connected on just 10 of 38 shots from the field.
“John Burroughs fought hard and they scored some points on the backside of our defense when we fell down,” said Small.
The victory was great, but the staff is making preparations for the district playoffs to be hosted in their building. Coming to Ram land will be Westminster Christian, Villa Duchesne, Clayton and University City.
Small figures his Rams will play feisty Villa in one of the semifinal games. He knows full well, he will have his hands full. The Rams are 15-5 with the win over Burroughs.
The Rams opened up with a 5-0 start and stretched it to 10-2 to end the first quarter.
Burroughs outscored the Rams 13-7 in the second and the production was limited the rest of the way.
Campbell Torchin was top scorer with 11 points, Emily Kyman chipped in 10.
“It was just a tough shooting night for us,” said Small. He called for practice today to get some things worked out.
