Jones County CHAMPS have a TUFF ten days - Eldon Marshall interview...


Well, well, well, what exactly do we have up in White River this year? The Tigers ran through the Jones County tournament in brilliant fashion. Eldon Marshall's crew won all three games in decisive fashion...

Beat Bennett County 82-39

Beat Lyman 80-53

Beat Jones County 88-54

Don't know if it is more impressive that White River's average margin of victory was 35 points or that they averaged 83 points per game?

So, the Tigers moved up in the SD Class B Media poll this week:

Class B

1. Clark/Willow Lake (10) 7-1 92 1

2. Bridgewater-Emery (9) 8-2 88 2

3. Sully Buttes 6-1 67 3

4. White River (3) 10-0 46 5

5. Canistota 7-1 17 RV

Receiving votes: Warner 13, Irene-Wakonda 3, Corsica-Stickney 2, Aberdeen Christian 2.

Coach Marshall talks about White Rivers run at the Jones County Tournament..

"I thought we did pretty good defensively and we were able to get turnovers and get some easy baskets, " Marshall said. "We shot the ball pretty well from the field, made a bunch of threes over the three day tournament."

How many threes in three days?

31!!!!

In those three games Jadice Morrison and Tyson Iyotte each hit 11 treys.

"Tyson averaged 20 per game over the tournament, Jadice 16 and Donnie Yackley 12 per game," Marshall said.

So, how in the heck did White River lose what they lost last year and are 10-0 and ranked No. 4 in the state?
