Youngker boys basketball coach Jake Nelson has a rather simple formula for his team’s success.
“We play a lot better if we make shots,” Nelson said. “When we shoot bad, it’s a long night for us.”
The latter was the case for Youngker Jan. 19 against Estrella Foothills, as the Roughriders struggled to score early and lost 56-35. Youngker managed just 11 first-half points, taking a lot of shots from distance that couldn’t find the twine.
