PAWTUCKET â€” Minutes before the Division II-Central clash between archrivals Tolman and Shea highs, Tigers coach Mike Kayata seemed even more intense than usual, and that's hard for him.
â€śWe're playing to win this one,â€ť he said as his players warmed up, â€śand the answer is going to be defense. We have to take care of the ball and limit their fast-break points. If we do that, we should be OK. They're tough. They're 13-3 for a reason, and we know that. These guys all know each other, so this is about pride and respect. We just have to take care of the ball.â€ť
