It feels so good to be back home.
After a two-game stretch which were also the first two losses on the board for the Glasgow boys basketball team this season, the Scotties returned to familiar territory against Wolf Point on Saturday and also returned to the win column.
Glasgow head coach Norm Braaten said that the bump in the road his team endured was needed, but that he believes his team has turned the page.
"I think we're back on the right track," Braaten said. "We're going to get back at it on Tuesday and Wednesday and get ready for Glendive on Thursday."
Glendive is the team responsible for handing Glasgow their first lost of the season and Braaten explained that there's not a lot of motivational speeches needed to get his team fired up for their rematch on Thursday.
"We just want to beat them period," Braaten said. "Glendive has a little bit of an attitude and we're ready for them."
In order for Glasgow to come away with a win this time against a formidable Glendive team that sports a 6-10 big man, Braaten says that it starts with not allowing Glendive players open looks from the outside.
"If we can take away the 3-pointers from Glendive and limit to what their post player does, we'll be in good shape," said Braaten.
Even with the two losses on their record now, both coming from schools in a Class A, Glasgow still remains atop the rankings in the state in the Class B.
The anticipated rematch will take place Thursday night at Glasgow.
