Geneva boys' defense is catalyst in rivalry win over Batavia
GENEVA – Batavia boys basketball coach Jim Nazos bemoaned his team’s inability to generate easy points against Geneva’s thorny defense, but his counterpart, Phil Ralston, wasn’t entirely ready to soak up the compliment.
“There weren’t many great looks at the basket that they had, but I thought there were times where we left the wrong guy open for shots, like (Micah) Coffey,” Ralston said. “Almost every three that he hit, we gave him too much space, so I think we need to get better at that.”
After his Vikings continued their perfect season, Ralston can afford to nitpick. The Vikings opened Upstate Eight Conference River play Friday with a 49-38 win against Batavia in front of a large rivalry crowd.
