After just two weeks of practice, Mansfield Senior opened the season last weekend with a pair of wins over Madison and Toledo Scott. The players and coaching staff were mostly pleased with their performance, but recognized that the teams conditioning could use some work.

"We need to get in better shape." Tygers senior guard Malon Samuel says. Mansfield Senior second-year head coach JT Reese agrees, but says the lack of conditioning is "warranted" after practicing for just a couple of weeks.

Even though the team may not quite be in game shape just yet, the Tygers were able to feed off the energy of the home crowd during each of their games last weekend. Mansfield Senior will once again welcome an opponent into Pete Henry Gymnasium on Friday, when conference foe Ashland comes to town.

The Arrows will enter the game at 0-2, but were competitive against a pair of the area's best teams in Norwalk and West Holmes. Reese says the game plan is to get Ashland "playing fast" and to win the rebounding battle. Junior forward Naradian James also says that rebounding will be important against the Arrows and believes the team "will come out with a W" if they can do work on the boards and play good defense.

Ashland will tip-off at Mansfield Senior around 7:30 on Friday night. Highlights and analysis will be featured after the game on WMFD's Scores and More LIVE at 11:30 p.m.
