I was concerned that might've been a climax and we were on our way down. Maybe the kids weren't ready for this game.

He is one of our best outside shooters AND one of our best post-up players. He passes well and creates things. Every game, he's playing more and more within the team.
Antonio was going to the middle and he did a great job on the boards. He is 6-foot-6 and so athletic. They were letting our guys shoot outside and I needed him to take the ball to the hole. He hit some big 3-point shots and took the ball inside to draw a lot of fouls.
Mike played outstanding. He played hard. We played different because we weren't afraid like we were last game.
That's something we try all year. We have the size underneath and we try to take advantage of it. Brentwood did a really nice job of making us shoot from the outside. They controlled the tempo - they didn't play and up and down game. They actually slowed the game down. They were smart. They kept it a low-scoring game.
There was no way they should've gotten those offensive boards. They just wanted it more - what concerned me about that was the character of our team needs to come through in situations like that. We did much better job in the second half.
We just had to find a groove. They did a nice job. Obviously, they scouted us and made it confusing for us. Josh Taylor was covering Antonio much of the time.
He's done a great job after sitting for more than a year. He does whatever it takes to win.
He hit two 3-point shots off the bench and he is a hero. He is a special kid and his mom passed away this summer. He's special because I think she is looking down and smiling. He isn't playing as much, but he is a big part of this team.
