“We stay on him to do all the little things right. Tonight I think he did lots of good things,” Bauxite Coach Mark Smith said of Madison. “He was on the boards for us big time. Ben played a really good game.”

It feels to me like we just celebrated the start of 2012, but here we are in 2013. I can't believe how quickly time passed.
