Coaches' Corner:

“I thought we played a great first quarter defensively.  We were flying around and making things tough for Ashland defensively.  I thought once we got our lead though, that we got really impatient offensively, and played selfishly at times, which was disappointing.  As we tried to do everything on our own, we allowed Ashland to get some momentum and get back in the game.  I thought in the second half, we did a good job of keeping our composure, and answering their runs.” -- Coach Kevin Scheef.
