This hasn’t been the dream season senior guard Anthony Sally envisioned.
Not the season where, after the Toppers knocked off Xavier (La.) in their only exhibition game, Sally said he’d like to average 10 assists a game. Not the season when Sally ran the point, feeding senior guard A.J. Slaughter on the wing and senior forward Jeremy Evans in the post.
Regardless, Sally’s spirits are high.
“I’m just happy — happy to be back healthy and playing well,” Sally said Thursday night after the Toppers knocked off visiting South Alabama
It would only make sense for Sally to be disappointed — about losing his starting spot to a freshman along with minutes and to suffering a midseason setback in the form of an ankle injury.
But Sally’s not here to talk about himself.
When asked how he felt, the senior instead talked about how the team felt. After stringing together three straight wins, apparently that’s pretty good.
“Everybody’s coming together — everybody knows their roles now,” Sally said. “We’re really bonding as a team, having team chemistry.”
