Coach Plotner said, “I was really happy with how hard our kids played. I felt like we played hard enough to win, but unfortunately we just came up short.”

Coach Dees said, “We are improving in all areas of the game; most specifically on the defensive end. I feel like our boys are enjoying good pressure defense and the rewards on the offensive end it brings. We still need to work on finishing at the rim offensively but we will continue to improve each week. The goal is to see our current weaknesses become strengths in the next few weeks before Christmas break and into our conference tournament after. Overall both groups are excited about our improvement and have shown they really want to improve and get better.”
