When Thacher basketball coach Jason Carney says this year’s team is the most cohesive, talented, and hardest-working squad he has ever coached, that is saying something. Carney’s teams are known for playing together and never backing down from a challenge, and this year’s version of the Toads is no different.
Carney said, “We've had a great leadership from the captains, and all 11 guys have committed themselves to playing team basketball. They expend great effort at all times and never believe they're out of a game; in fact, most of our big wins this year have come on the road. We're heading into the playoffs playing our best defense of the season.”
