The varsity boys basketball team finished their season with a record of 7-19. Head coach Darrin Session said the team had ups and downs this season, but they finished strong.

“I think we connected very well with them,” Session said. “I think we’re changing their mind sets as far as what they think about themselves and their expectations, so we’re looking for big things next year.”

It’s Session’s first year as head coach.

“Changing the mentality of what it means to be a winner and what it feels like to be a winner,” He said about his biggest adjustment as a first year SHHS coach.

Senior Immanuel Williams started playing basketball in 10th-grade. The 5-foot-10 inch point guard said the team stayed together the whole season, but the team’s biggest weaknesses were they didn’t communicate well or set up their defense properly. Williams plans to run track at Prairie View A&M University and study sociology next year.

“I feel we stayed together the whole season,” Williams said. “We did good planning and all that stuff. We need to work on listening to others. We just needed more leaders.”

Junior Prag “Henry” Tac plays center. Tac stands 6 feet 2 inches tall. He said the team defeated themselves in some games. He also said the team needs to work on its chemistry and grow closer. So far, Tac is looking to Nebraska for higher education because currently, they’ve showed the most interest in him.

“Against Martin, we executed, we played defense and we executed our offense,” Tac said when asked what the team did well this season. “My expectations for next season is to win more games and not have close games with other schools.”
