On the game
They shot their free throws very well in the second half. Our guys played hard and battled pretty hard, we just came up a little short. We were pleased with the effort. Defensively, we didn’t communicate on some plays and I knew if it got to 90 we were in trouble. We just gave up too many easy baskets.
