For most Verde Valley students, school may be out for the summer, but class is not dismissed for Camp Verde High School’s basketball program until after its home tournament concludes Saturday, June 28.
All of these experiences did not leave CVHS head basketball coach Dan Wall time for much else but did allow him to build a team markedly different from the varsity that started last season with five seniors but finished with the third-worst record in Division III, Section 3, and double-digit losses.
“Probably half of them, we weren’t extremely proficient at scoring the basketball either,” Wall said prior to the Cowboys’ trip Friday, June 20, to a tournament at Coconino High School in Flagstaff, where they won two games and lost three — one by a single bucket Saturday, June 21, to Blue Ridge High School, “probably the best team in the tourney,” according to Wall.
“We put ourselves in position to win, but you still [have] got to put the ball in the basket. It’s just finishing layups under contact: We just need to be finishing at the rim, and we’re not doing that.”
