JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Ed White Commanders are in the class 6A Boys Basketball Final Four for the first time in school history.
The Commanders will face the defending state champions Miami Norland Friday at 2:30 p.m. in Lakeland, Fla.
Commanders Head Coach Ben Jones stopped by the First Coast Sports studio Wednesday, where he told First Coast Sports Anchor Chris Porter, that while his team is excited about the opportunity to play in the final four, they won't be satisfied unless they cut down the nets in Lakeland.
Although the Commanders won their third straight District Championship, no one expected this squad to make this deep of a run.
When Ed White and Miami Norland take to the court Friday afternoon, the Commanders will be in a position they've found themselves in throughout this postseason run – the underdogs.
Coach Jones says his team does not have any issues with being considered the underdogs considering they've had much success in that role all postseason long.
