Coach’s Comments:
“It was not the prettiest of games tonight, but we were able to overcome a frigid shooting night to get the road conference victory. We shot only 3 for 28 from three, and less that 24 percent overall, which is very unlike us. Credit Durand for making some of our shots tough, but we have got to do a better job with shot selection and when we get good looks, we’ve got to be focused to give it our best effort. We didn’t defend particularly well tonight either, but we able to force enough turnovers to make up for a poor shooting percentage. We will look to get back after it going into next week with two big league games with Montrose Tuesday, and on the road with a big time conference contender in Mt. Morris on Thursday.”
