Our last two games we've shot the ball a lot better. We're starting to jell as a team.
I've been there many times since I've been to Buckeye. We've lost by a total of 21 points in games this season.
On long rebounds, we didn't box out well and they out-hustled us at times. Once they had a feel they were in the game -- if you let a team in the game, in the fourth quarter, it can come back to bite you and that's what happened today.
This is the best we've executed offensively all season. The guards did a nice job of getting the ball into the post, and the post players did a nice job of getting position and giving the guards the opportunity. It kind of goes hand-in-hand.
They shot well in the first half against our zone. When we changed to that man-to-man in the second half, we controlled their three-point attempts. They didn't make any in the second half. Maybe I should have gone to that a little sooner.
That was the best game of the year for Emi. I think she's grown up a little bit. She led the team in scoring, but we need more than that. This (loss) is a hard one to swallow.
To her credit, she hit both foul shots.
She's a good kid. I hope she has great success up there and I believe she will do it. She didn't just score, she would take over the boards. And besides that, she could run the floor and handle the ball coming up the court in pressure situations.
