“This was a disappointing night. A bad second quarter really did us in. I thought we fought better in the second half. We got the lead to 3 early in the fourth and were right there, but missed several shots around the rim. We struggled shooting the ball, we struggled taking care of it, and we struggled rebounding the ball.” -- Coach Scheef
