Coach writes, “He led Hyde to an exciting 72-69 double OT victory over rival Valley High School on Friday. Evander was clutch in the game scoring 9 of his game high 13 points in the overtime periods. The win vaulted the Phoenix to the top seed in the Class D West basketball standings. Hyde moved to 6-0 on the season after this weekend. He is a joy to coach. He is open to learning which is why he has made such great progress. Evander puts the team in front of his own ego. He doesn’t care whether he starts or comes off the bench. He has learned to take criticism. He hustles on both ends of the floor. During one of the time-outs in the Valley game, I pulled him aside and told him to close out the game. And he went out and did just that.”
