In a battle of #1 vs. #2 ranked teams, the Wahoo Warriors were defeated by the Ashland-Greenwood Bluejays 65-43 on Tuesday night in Ashland, in front of a packed house.

Coaches' Corner:

“We were really solid for a half and felt good about our efforts for a half.  In the second half, we stopped defending the ball well and allowed them to get to the paint or to the rim.  We also stopped moving the ball offensively which led to bad shots and turnovers.  It is hard to beat a really good team like Ashland shooting 31% from the field and 50% from the line.” -- Coach Kevin Scheef.
