Coaches' Corner:
“We had a number of opportunities to really take control of the game through the first three quarters, but we would make some bad decisions and force some bad shots, miss some free throws, and just let them hang around, and that came back to haunt us in the fourth quarter.  There were a lot of positives tonight, but being more patient and getting the right shot on the offensive end is going to be critical, as well as consistently playing better defense.”  -- Coach Kevin Scheef.
