AUDIO TK Griffith Discusses Knight Basketball

The Hoban Knights have had a bit of a layoff before tournament play, but they are looking to make some moves and make a deep run.

Head coach of the Archbishop Hoban boys' squad T.K. Griffith joined the Sam Bourquin Show to talk about his team needing to be on the same page heading into the second season.

"Right now we're just trying to get everybody together, get that coheisiveness,  that basketball need to be successful, and hopefully come back  with that same chemistry we used to get a couple of nice wins earlier in the year," he said.

 

Griffith says he's confident in his squad regardless if his team faces either Firestone or Nordonia (who play tonight).

"I feel a ton better about our guys right now, because we had some good practices this week," he said.

AUDIO Griffith, Hoban Knights Keep Rolling

The Archbishop Hoban Knights boys' basketball team has been off and rolling in the new year, but there will be plenty of challenges moving forward.

TK Griffith, the head coach of the Knights joined the Sam Bourquin Show to talk about how his 12-1 Knights are doing.

"Im proud of what these guys have done, we're not very big, our tallest player is 6 foot 2 or 6 foot 3, and if we play the right way we can beat anybody," he says.

After an opening loss to Youngstown Ursuline, the Knights have reeled off 12 wins in a row, beating teams like Walsh Jesuit and Western Reserve Academy along the way.

  

The Knights will take on Notre Dame Cathedral Latin tonight before squaring off with Benedictine January 26. 

Coach Griffith likes the balance both offensively and defensively of his team, and with six players at or near double figures, he likes the makeup of his team.
