The defending OCC champion Mansfield Senior High Tygers are once again off to a fast start on the basketball court. The team has won each of it's first three games by at least 13 points, despite logging a limited amount of practice time after getting a late start to the season.

Tygers second-year head coach JT Reese says he was never worried about the team gelling during the early portion of the season though, but is still concerned with getting the squad in peak physical condition.

"For me, us coming together has never been an issue. These guys have been playing together a long time." Reese says. "What still is the issue is the conditioning portion."

Reese says their style of play requires the team be in great physical shape and believes they are only 60% of the way to getting there. But Mansfield center Donovyn Benson says it isn't because of a lack of conditioning at practice.

"Coach is running us every day hard." Benson says.

The 6' 7" senior has been outstanding for the Tygers so far this season, leading the team in both scoring and rebounding. Benson says the team has been working hard every day at practice and that they can "take it as far as we push ourselves."

While Benson and company have been great during thei 3-0 start, the squad has enjoyed the luxory of playing their first three games at home. The Tygers will get their first taste of a hostile environment this Friday however, when the team travels to Wooster for a date with the 2-3 Generals.

"Wooster's a tough team." Reese says. "They got a couple of big's down low that can cause some problems."

"We're gonna get prepared all week for them." Says Benson. "Get everything well planned, practice well, hard work and we'll get through it."

Once Mansfield get's through the Wooster game, they will then travel to Sandusky the following night. Reese says he doesn't focus on the Saturday game until the morning of and that he tries to "mesh" the game plans together during the week. The Blue Streaks will have already played two games during the week before they take on the Tygers, hosting Toledo Bowsher on Tuesday, then NOL foe Willard on Friday.
