The (6-9) Blue Devils of Quincy High face another daunting challenge on the prep hardwood in less than 24 hours.
The “Blue and White” will take on (13-4) United Township, but the question right now is is, will starting guard Adonte Crider be 100 percent for the Western Big 6 contest set for East Moline.
Crider was on the sidelines at practice on Wednesday.
He had his injured right ankle in a bucket of ice after rolling the ankle during practice on Wednesday.
WGEM Sports contacted Crider at practice and he stated that he expects to be ready to play Friday against the Panthers of UT.
The question now is, will Crider be at 100 percent before tip-off.
The rest of teh squad at QHS is healthy, engaged, and focused. The Blue Devils were “all business” during Friday’s workout session that started just after 2:45 pm.
The mission this week for Quincy is simple, be prepared and mentally strong to face the second place squad in the WB6 conference standings.
UT has yet to lose a game on their home floor this season.
Coach Douglas stated on Friday, “UT is going to be tough, you know their undefeated at home. They play a similar style, similar defense that we play they’re pretty good at it.”
The 5th year head coach went on to add. “Their a team that’s gotten better from day one on and it’s always tough playing there but I think the guys are ready for the opportunity to not only get
another game in but get another conference game in. ”
