CASCADE (KWWL) -- For the Cascade Cougars a state tournament appearance looms on the horizon and they are lead by their every man Regan Takes, senior point guard Jake Green says, "It's good to have someone like him on our team, all the attention goes to him and it opens more pieces for everyone else."
Head Coach Al Marshall says his senior has come into his own this season. "This year he has diversified his game. He's become more of a scorer, he can score in different ways other than just shooting. He's also grown a little bit and he's our main guy on the boards.''
The humble senior has averages 19.5 points and 8.5 boards per game this season leading the cougars to a 24 and 1 record and a number 3 seed in next weeks state tournament and Takes is relishing in the moment. "State tournament is obviously a goal every year, it's a dream come true for us to make it there and were playing great right now and we just hope we can keep it going."
After losing the first game of the season to Monticello, the Cougars thought their season may be in jeopardy. Since then, Cascade has rolled off 24 straight wins en route to their first trip to state since 2001 and will be looking for win number 25 Tuesday March 8th against North Cedar, Stranwood in the first round of the state tournament.
