Lee basketball riding high

LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -

 

The Lee County Trojans are riding a wave of momentum under new head coach Kirven Davis. 

After a shaky start to the season, the Trojans have won 3 of their last 5 games and are sitting at 2-1 in the region.

Coach Davis says his young crew has grown a lot over the course of the season and the rest of the school has taken notice.

He says the basketball team has increasingly been a buzz around campus which gives the players more incentive to bring their fans more wins this season.

"The main thing I've noticed is the way the kids carry themselves around school. Their peers look at them differently. The kids show some excitement about the game being tonight. Now the students say we're coming to the game and that makes a big difference," said head coach Kirven Davis.

"I feel like we deserve it. Its our time. We're tired of losing. Its time to start winning now," said Stephen Collier.

Lee County is back on the road Friday at Thomas County Central.
