“This was a great win for our kids. We have never came to Norfolk and gotten after them like that. We shot the ball very well, but a lot of that was due to excellent ball movement and good shot selection. Catholic did not shoot it well, but I think our defense had something to do with that. Jake Ruzicka had a great night for us. Billy Hancock really got us going in the first half with his three point shooting, and Cameron Quick and Dylan Egr played very well for us also.” -- Coach Scheef
