When he took over the Lehighton boys basketball program last year, Rich Oertner was not very thrilled with his team's ball movement. Four games into this season, Oertner is content with that aspect's improvement.
The Indians utilized some good teamwork, crisp passing and unselfishness to generate offense on their way to a 68-40 drubbing of Jim Thorpe on Saturday.
"We're moving the ball a lot better this year, than at this point in the season last year," Oertner approved. "We're still learning and we're starting to get there. But our defense was a big factor tonight, too."
