"The boys went toe to toe with the #1 team in the state tonight. We opened the game well in the 1st quarter; however, we became a little sluggish in the 2nd quarter. But the resiliency of the boys showed up in the 2nd half as we had several opportunities to take the lead. As we progress into the second half of the season we need to convert on these opportunities. With our first four games being against top-10 opponents, the lessons we've learned in those games will help us out a great deal in the last half of the season."
