That was the story of the game. We were hurt by a little lack of execution but certainly not by a lack of effort. We fought back and cut their lead to four points, but then they hit their free throws.
We had a few turnovers and they capitalized. I was proud of the guys we had on the floor. We put up a good battle.
He`s finally starting to get into a groove. He`s had a lot to deal with this year with the knee and his aunt dying. He was pretty close to his aunt.
We didn`t do much until the fourth quarter. We had a very strong fourth quarter.
I was extremely happy with that second group. Those guys brought energy and intensity that we didn`t have.
We`ve played better in the District. We`re playing with some confidence. We`re looking forward to the opportunity (to play for a District title).
I had strong feelings about winning today, but there was good competition. I`m pretty satisfied with how I ran today, but I have to run faster and keep working hard.
Add to this to the sometimes over complicated legal systems of foreign countries, planning permission and language barriers, the whole process can turn into a living nightmare.
They took it to us with offensive rebounding. They played well and we didn`t play the way we needed to play to keep it competitive.
We came out in the first quarter pretty intense. We played pretty well.
