KX Sports’ Ken Kosirowski caught up with Century girls head coach Ron Metz after the team’s 60-25 state semifinal win over Legacy Friday evening, and Metz lauded the effort he saw on defense.

“It’s a huge team effort,” Metz said. “Whatever rotation we’ve had out there, the five girls out there just get after it defensively. Getting stops, causing shot clock violations or wild shots at the end of the shot clock, forcing contested shots. That’s what we preach, what we work on, and they’ve put it all together–not just today, but the last five games they’ve done that.”

Century limited Legacy to just nine points in the second half of the semifinal game.

The focus for the Patriots now is on the Devils Lake Firebirds, who face them Saturday night in the championship game. Metz said the Firebirds are impressive in multiple areas.

“Their athleticism, their multiple scorers that they have,” Metz said. “They’re a very solid team offensively, and as you said, defensively their press, the way they trap. They get all over it. Turnovers are going to be a huge key tomorrow. We’re going to have to be be able to take care of the basketball and limit turnovers. They turn turnovers into layups pretty easily, so its going to be a huge part of the game tomorrow.”

Tipoff between Century and Devils Lake Saturday night is set for 6 p.m.
