Draper • A little self-generated bulletin board material did the trick Tuesday night for Timpview.
Chaz Ah You's tongue-in-cheek comment Monday in practice about how few plays the Thunderbirds run was the inspiration behind a 75-69 victory at Corner Canyon, securing a playoff berth for Timpview.
"Chaz said, 'Hey, for a team that doesn't run many plays, we sure have a whole lot of them,' " Timpview coach Kevin Santiago said. "I wrote that quote up on the board, and then I think I called five plays tonight."
The result was a defense-optional, end-to-end game that saw Timpview bury 14 3-pointers and let point guard Adam Santiago create off dribble penetration.
