"It means a lot man. These kids have worked hard all season," said Anthony Webb, Baldwin head coach. "Even though the season's been up and down, they worked hard. They didn't give up. I gave them a good halftime speech. Told them to take it one basket at a time. They came out and they executed and hey, we won the game."
