Johnny Pelham and Tony Mabrey – both former college basketball coaches and both former college players – might have had the best quotes at WQSB's Marshall County Basketball Media Day.

“The game of basketball hasn’t changed,” Coach Pelham of Asbury said. “You still have to put it in the hole and play defense. The game of football hasn’t changed if you want the truth about it. It’s still about blocking and tackling.”

Brindlee’s Coach Mabry, speaking of his scrappy player Chantzley Kirkland, said “She’d foul a dog if one walked by right now.”

In addition to Chantzley, Adri Knepper was at Media Day with the Brindlee coach. Coach Mabrey further elaborated on the fouling a dog comment.

Chantzley said she’d like to think she wouldn’t foul a dog, but admitted she might.

“I can tell you the difference between Chantzley and Adri,” Coach Mabrey said. “Chantzley would admit she did it. Adri would do it, but tell you she didn’t.”

"That's probably true," Adri said.
