LIMA — St. Marys head basketball coach Dan Hegemier laid out the blueprint for a tournament upset to his team just minutes after his Roughriders advanced in the tournament with a 64-58 win over Shawnee on Tuesday night and No. 14 Elida looming.
“I just told the guys in the locker room that I’ve been doing this awhile and I’ve beaten some good teams in the tournament and I’d like to do it again,” Hegemier said. “But you can’t be indecisive, you have to be confident, you have to play hard and you have to play together.”
