P.K. Yonge to face University Christian for a chance at the State Semifinals

No. 4 P.K. Yonge (19-7) will face No. 7 University Christian (20-7) for the third straight season in the playoffs on Tuesday at 7 p.m. At their last meeting, the Blue Wave defeated the Christians in the regional semifinals, 55-39.

When it comes to the post season, Blue Waves head coach Willie Powers sees it as a fresh start.

Strategy on the court

The Blue Wave is hungry for a state title with their last one being in 2012.

Powers says he is aware of FAU commit Glenisha Harkless from University Christian, but by working hard and doing what P.K. Yonge is able to do they can get a victory.

He says that there are not a lot of teams who can play with them with what they do best.

Players trusting their coaches

Powers says that there has been a problem with the kids believing in everyone else, but not their coaches.

He says to combat that they are playing kids who are putting in the effort.

Looking ahead

If P.K. Yonge gets the win on Tuesday night, they will play No. 2 Tampa Carrrollwood Day or No. Seffner Christian in the state semifinals on Feb. 28.
