Park aims to improve their 5-7 record with a win Jan. 13 against Edina.

Senior captain Ryan Domres said Edina will provide a familiar challenge comparable to Wayzata.

“As a whole we focused on clearing rebounds and disrupting shooters, as Edina is very similar to Wayzata,” Domres said.

Domres said in addition to playing like Wayzata, Edina has talented players who will test the Orioles as a team.

“Edina has two guards that are talented that we are going to have to play a tight game against. They are also a physical team that rebounds hard so we have to make sure we are boxing out their players,” Domres said.

Head coach Dave Breitenbucher said he thinks the team must improve in several areas from last their game Jan. 10 against Wayzata.

“I would like to see our team do a better job in clearing defensive rebound and have a more consistent offensive flow,” Breitenbucher said.

Domres said he thinks the team is well prepared for the game against Edina.

“We focused on things that we struggled with in the Wayzata game, as well as making sure we were prepared for the game mentally,” Domres said.

Breitenbucher said the team has done a good job of preparing for this upcoming game.

“Coaches have scouted and put together a game plan. Coaches and players have going over game film of ourselves and opponents,” Breitenbucher said.

Breitenbucher said he has faith in the team moving forward this season.

“Players continue work each day in practice to ensure we are getting better as a team. We are constantly striving to get in good habits on the court,” Breitenbucher said.

Park plays at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 13 at Edina against the Hornets.
