On February 21, Smoky Hill starts playoffs going up against Horizon high school, with many students feeling very strongly about tonight’s basketball game.

“We 100% are gonna win, they all know each other pretty well and so they got it,” Nathan Chavis (12) said.

The team playing with each other for multiple years creates a sense of stability for both the players and coaches. While many of the players have been playing together for awhile, the absence  of the head coach for the last couple of weeks differentiates them from other teams.

“ I think with coach Hardin missing for the last couple weeks it has thrown them off and I think they may continue to throw them off, but they’re still gonna do good I bet,” Kahlia Shaw (10) said.

 With or without the head coach, Smoky hill has continuously won game after game, losing only 6 in the season.

“ The playoffs are gonna be hard there the playoffs, I think we just have to come back twice and play well,” Dawan Wilbert (9) said.

Every team is trying to make it to the top during playoffs, sparing no other teams. Every team wants to win.

“ I mean no team doesn’t wanna win playoffs, which is why we gotta give it 100%,” Wilbert said.

“It honestly all comes down to good communication you know, they just need to keep talking and they’ll be fine.” Jacob Moore (10) said.

Many students have expressed what they feel it’ll take for the boys basketball to win, how they show their school spirit is a different story.

“I mean showing school spirit is a big deal during times like this [the playoffs]. It’s important to show up or atleast show that you care a little,” Jade Burke (10) said. 

While showing up to sporting events creates team spirit, other students feel that there’s another way to show that you care.

“ I know for me atleast if I see a basketball player on our team I’ll tell them good luck and stuff like that,” Samuel Robertson (9) said.

With the playoffs starting and the season being the first year in 17 years to make it to the playoffs, the student interest for Smoky Hill sports may peak tremendously, making this year’s basketball team something everyone wants to watch.
