“There are some positives to take from this game. We had an 8 point lead on the #10 team in the state at two different points in the game. There was about a 90 second stretch at the end of the first half, that kind of swung the momentum back to them. We just could not get stops against them in the second half. Our defense and our rebounding have to get better for us to get this turned around.” -- Coach Scheef
