The Loyola Blakefield basketball team will be using its own version of small ball this season, and hoping for big results.
"We will have five guys who handle the ball and five guys who can shoot the ball from the perimeter on the floor at all times," said Loyola coach Josh Davalli, whose team is coming off a 8-19 record.
Among those Davalli is referring to are senior guards Ryan Floyd (6 feet 1), Ryan Conrad (6-0) and Christian Anderson (6-0), and junior guards Andrew Fava (5-11) and Cole Williams (6-4).
"We will try to take advantage of some mismatches when our smaller guys are being guarded by bigger guys from the other team," Davalli said. "It could be a different guy leading us in scoring every night. It could be a positive for us. It could be scoring by committee.
"Andrew can really shoot the ball," he added about Fava.
