I think we did a better job on their other kids. Donald is a great player, but we didn't allow any of their other kids to get going. Last time, Lincoln Wright had 24 against us. We let Donald get his, but we kept the other players down tonight, and that was the key.
We knew the thing they did best was rebound the ball. They don't shoot well, but they get a lot of rebounds. We had a lot of trouble with them in the first half on the glass.
The speed of the game affected us early on. We are used to being quicker than the other team and these guys were as quick as us. That makes you rush...you can miss easy shots that you normally make because at the end they close quickly.
We knew when we scheduled them it would be a good, tough game. They are kind of like us in that they like to get up and down the court. Other than not winning we got what we wanted out of the game. When tournament time comes around we'll be able to build on this.
We shot the ball really well, and that was the difference tonight. Tom Powers made six 3-pointers and was everywhere on the court. It was just a great performance for our team.
