We were a little intimidated in the first 4-5 minutes. But after that, we never had any rhythm on offense. Tonight, our young kids learned the difference between non-conference and AAAAA-West basketball.
It was the same press. We used the same press-breaker, but we didn't execute. We just were not as focused and ready to play as we were the first time.
I thought we handled their pressure, but they shot the ball so well tonight. They are so good inside, we tried to play zone, but they made shots. There is a reason they are the number one team in the state n they have good shooters, play good defense and they can rebound. They have all the things a coach would want.
We have to learn how to cope with the physical play and against people who will be taller and bigger than we are. We have to put a body on a body to keep teams from hurting us on the offensive boards. We can learn from this game and get better.
