Harrison Coach Chiarella Talks State of Team

HARRISON, N.Y. – The Harrison Huskies are the No. 19 seed in the Class A tournament and will face No. 14 seed Walter Panas on Friday. Coach Gary Chiarella shared some thoughts with The Daily Harrison about the postseason after last week’s game against Fox Lane.

Question: How do you think your team improved since the beginning of the season?

Answer: We’ve improved tremendously. In the beginning of the season, we turned the ball over 20, 25 times a game…But the turnovers have been really good lately, very low. That’s been the biggest thing that we cut out and we’ve rebounded pretty good the last few games.

What would you say are your team’s biggest strengths?

Team unity. I just told them that this is the best 12 kids from one to 12 that we’ve had in being a team. They get it. We might not be the most skilled but we definitely have it together as a team and that’s probably more important than having a couple of skill players and a couple of kids that think that they should be playing more or whatever the case is. So we’re very happy where we are. We just need a better effort.

What are going to be the keys to success in the postseason?

We have to play with energy, not turn the ball over and rebound and we’ll be fine because we do a pretty good job shooting. But we don’t play with energy, we’re small and we’re not the most talented group in the world. So we just can’t go on our talent. So we need to play with energy, some fire.
