Larkin admits BHS needed other players to step up and score in the double-figures on Tuesday, but no one responded.
“There has to be somebody that steps up, whether it’s spread out over five or six guys, but somebody else has to score,” he said. “As a team, I don’t think everybody did their part.”
For seniors Marquise Williams, Jatavius Williams, Dunn and Richardson, their high school careers come to an end with the loss to Perry.
“For our junior, and our sophomores and our freshmen, for them there’s always next year and other opportunities,” Larkin said. “But for them that was it — their last game.”
While the Braves’ season came to an ugly, abrupt end last week, Larkin believes they must now focus on the future and restoring a program that once produced some of the best basketball teams in the state every year.
“Nonetheless, we aren’t pleased with losing, but we’re still proud of our guys,” he said. “They’re still Baldwin Braves.
We’ll continue to work toward it, and that will continue to be the driving force. Not only to win the region, but go deep into the state playoffs.”
