“I was really happy with our effort and how we played tonight. We were very active defensively, and we really moved the ball well on the offensive end. We shot it very well, but a lot of that had to do with our ball movement and finding open looks that were good shots. Trevor Kasischke really had a great break out game, which was really good to see. Gerardo Madrid played really well for us, and Thomas Waido continues to be a force on the defensive end” Said Coach Kevin Scheef.
Trey Scheef led the Warriors on 18 points on 8-12 shooting from the field. Trevor Kasischke had a career high 16 points on 4-4 shooting from behind the arc. Thomas Waido had 14 points, 5 boards, 5 steals, and 6 assists. Gerardo Madrid added 11 points on 3-4 shooting from behind the arc.
The Warriors were 12-22 from behind the arc and forced 28 Pioneer turnovers, while committing just 10 themselves.
