“They were on the verge of blowing them out, then many open looks started to not fall. I think the first game nerves were getting to them,” said Coach Cary Thompson. “The offense started to get stagnant, and it showed when they got outscored 2-12 in the third”.

In the third quarter, they shot a lot threes, but they stopped taking it inside and didn’t work the ball very well. In the fourth quarter they got outscored 5-13. They did not get back on defense which led to Greene County getting easy buckets.
