“(Brents) is an effort kid,” Flatt said. “He goes all-out all of the time and we need that. We have to have him rebounding and we have to have him scoring down low. He has been a catalyst for us inside. Jarek really picked us up tonight and got some rebounds when we had to have them.”
Barber said he was also impressed with Covenant’s interior play.
“They really hurt us inside,” he said. “Their big guys — Brents and Hipsher — they’re very active in there. They’re probably the most active that we’ve seen all year, at least up to now. They hurt us tonight on some rebounds and those kinds of things.”
Flatt said Covenant Christian is finishing the toughest stretch of its schedule with Park Tudor, Chatard, and Danville. Covenant Christian will look to rebound from the loss when it battles Indianapolis Marshall Dec. 29 in the Scott Bostick Tournament.
