From the sideline: Senior Geno White’s season average is 19 points and 7.5 rebounds a game. In the last two weeks, Geno has been on a tear helping his team clinch a playoff sport. Versus Decatur, he had 34 points and 18 rebounds in a winning team effort. Geno has been our heart and soul and as he went, we followed. He brought intensity and competitiveness to these last few games. Something clicked in Geno’s game that he could do more than just score and started to impact the game more by so doing so. He allowed his teammates to seek more opportunities and in the end, helped create easier shots for himself. Our biggest superstar is the team and with Geno playing engaged with his teammates, it allowed us to play at the higher level.
