[Sean King for Shaw Media]“It’s all of it. We’re undersized, you know,” said Ives, a 5-foot-10 senior guard. “That team had, what, a 6-7 kid, a 6-5, something like that. So, the only way undersized kids really win games is through effort and the understanding that outworking our opponent is going to be huge in every single game. Our coach is a huge proponent of that. He pushes us in practice. Effort just really keeps this program going.” In another setting, perhaps one more stationary than the jump- and cut-happy backdrop of a basketball game, Ives might need a chair to stand and shout over certain members of the Saints’ frontcourt. Instead, the Tigers used their would-be seats in the team room for postgame revelry, standing and banging their chair legs on the ground while assembling for coach Mike Healy’s address.
