Trinity-Byrnes off to a hot start

Darlington— The Trinity-Byrnes boys basketball team could not be any hotter right, now starting out the season with a 10-0 run with wins over West Florence twice and also over Westwood High.

Head Coach Larry Cullinane said the schedule has been very difficult but that his team has met the challenges.

“The kids are playing well and they are playing together,” he says.

The Titans are scoring well with a guard heavy team, with four players averaging in double figures.

La’Sauhn McFadden, a 6’3” senior, is averaging over 15 points a game. Terance Mack is averaging 13.4 points a game, Jordan Jones is averaging 11.8 points a game, and Ryan Frierson is averaging 10.3 points a game.

Cullinane said that his team can score and that is one of the reasons that his Titans create match up problems for opponents.

Three of the team’s guards are ranked among the best players in the state, and Trinty-Byrnes starts nearly all guards in the starting five.

“We don’t really have a post presence,” says Cullinane. “We are difficult to defend because we have all five players on the court who are able to handle to ball and we are able to push the ball up the court either off of a rebound of a made basket.

“We are playing a minimum of three point guards on the court at all times.”

Turnovers have not been much of an issue for the Titans, even though they do run a fast paced offense.

The head coach said that if he has a concern about his team’s play right now, it would be in the facet of rebounding.

“We basically 6’3” (and under) and that’s our size, and none of those kids are big, bulky, strong athletes,” he says. “We are quick and can attack but I always worry about us rebounding the ball well but we are doing that well currently.”

 During the holidays the Titans will be participating in the Pepsi Challenge Tournament.
