I thought we were very aggressive during the first half and our zone pressure disrupted them somewhat. We really executed well at times. Later on, their pressure put us out of sync.
Their pressure hurt us and we threw the ball away too many times.
It really feels good to finally execute at both ends of the floor. We have been so close so many times, to get one is sweet. Hopefully it is a beginning for us. It sure feels good.
They (St. Joseph) obviously stepped it up a notch after halftime. They do such a good job of finding the open man when they're into it. In fact, they're so good that they can take bad shots and make them. And, when they miss, they just go to the glass.
Marian seems to have improved considerably over the first time we met. They seemed to get their hands on everything. We needed to be much more aggressive with the basketball. They scored too many transition baskets.
