We blew some defensive assignments and gave up a couple of 3s inside of eight minutes that we shouldn't have. Then we couldn't score for a few minutes and that hurt us.
I thought we played fairly well in the first half. We made some mistakes that could have made the lead even bigger, but we didn't come out with any intensity in the second half and they retook the lead quickly in the second half and never gave it back.
Highland is the No. 2 team in the nation and they are talented from one to 13 on the roster and we just don't have enough horses. But I am happy for my kids because we competed tonight.
