Argo thought his squad had done particularly well in practice sessions leading up to the win over the Eagles.

Pinson Valley (13-7, 4-1) finishes off its area games as it hosts Springville on Tuesday night. The Indians won on their December game at the Tigers’ gym, but it wasn’t easy.”
“We’ve still got a job to do there Tuesday,” Argo said. “We struggled and didn’t play well, and it was during a time where we weren’t playing particularly well. But now we’re playing beter and hitting shots we hadn’t been hitting earlier.”
