It’s a safe bet that from now on, Ron Drake will be a little more measured when talking about his defense.
Drake, a veteran basketball coach in northern New Mexico, started bragging a little bit about his team’s defense recently. Just a few hours later, the Española Valley Sundevils had their worst defensive showing of the season at Shiprock.
“I was concerned,” said Drake, now in his second season as the head coach of the Sundevils. “You never have an off-night on defense.”
