Warrior Nation Reforms! IHCC hoops fans come out in full force for 2013 'Meet The Warriors' night

(Continued)

Peery, along with Warrior players Jordan Washington, Malik Dime and Akolda Manyang had plenty of fun bringing young IHCC hoops fans down to compete in the ‘big shoes, big uniform’ race. That event showcased an ease for even three of the newest members of the Warrior team to interact with the fans, something Peery and his players always strive for as part of the IHCC basketball program.

“The fans have put their arms around us and made us feel at home from day one,” Peery said while he, his coaches and his players signed several autographs inside the Hellyer Student Life Center on Tuesday. “We are at home here. We love what the people bring to the table and we love the responsibility of making sure we put a quality product on the floor that the fans can be proud of.” “We like to interact with the fans, especially the kids. I remember my freshman year all the fans that traveled all around to country to watch us play. We have a nice fan base and we wanted to show how appreciative we are,” Bobbit added.

Another sophomore transfer, Dominique Williams, took home the ‘Warrior slam-dunk’ title, putting home two straight impressive slams without a miss to beat out Pensacola J.C. transfer Dawud Saalam. The two skill competitions showed that, despite several new faces, Peery looks to have restocked Indian Hills with the type of talent that can continue the up-tempo style that has allowed the Warriors to go 59-8 over the past two seasons.

“We don’t know any other way to play it. We’re still going to be the same Indian Hills team that presses the pace of play on each end of the court. It’s going to be the same entertaining team we’ve always had,” Peery said.
