This was a very competitive and hard fought game. Both teams played very hard throughout. The entire first half was back and forth and had several lead changes. Eldon made a basket right before halftime to stretch the lead to 3. We had a really poor start to the 3rd quarter and gave them 3 baskets and a freethrow which stretched the lead to 10 almost immediately. We then had to try and fight out of that hole for the rest of the game. We simply did not get enough defensive stops throughout the game, especially in the 3rd quarter, to give ourselves a chance to win this game. Everytime we got the lead down to 10 or 12 and we had the momentum, it seemed we would do something to hurt ourselves, like turn it over or lose a man on defense. This happened about 3 times and we were unable to close the gap because of it. Throughout the game we did do a great job of getting the ball inside and one highlight for us was James Hutchraft who finished with 27 points, 10 rebounds, and played the entire game. I was proud of how our team competed. If we were able to get a few more breaks or could have limitted a couple of our mistakes that would of helped make the game much closer at the end. Despite our struggles in games, each player on our team has really improved throughout the year. Hopefully they have learned a lot from the challenges they faced this season that will help them during the upcoming years.

We got off to a slow start and we had trouble making up the defecit for the rest of the game. Besides the first quarter, we played them within a few baskets each quarter, but these small deficits lead to the final 14 point spread. We had 24 turnovers and that played a big factor in a game that could of been close without them. When we were able to get the ball on the offensive end of the court we did have some good moments, but we were unable to do that consistently enough to turn the game around.

Scoring: James Hutchraft: 15, Dylan Long: 9, Drew Edwards: 7, Logan Havner: 2, Langston Lewis: 1

The first 3 quarters we had a really hard time handling their press and taking care of the ball. This gave them easy transistion baskets. When we were able to get the ball on the offensive end of the floor we were not solid with our passes and didn't give ourselves many chances to score. We did not compete well  duing the 1st half. We came out and played with more confidence and energy in the 2nd half, but we had dug ourselves such a big hole that it made it very challenging to get back in the game.

We started the game off very aggressive offensively and Drake Gaines made 4-3 pointers in the 1st quarter.  We led 17-16 after the first quarter but Hallsville started making some outside shots and we were down by 9 at the half.  We talked about the adjustments we needed to make at half and played great defense in the 3rd quarter to get us back in the game, it was tied 50-50 at the end of 3rd.  The fourth quarter was back and forth with Hallsville making two big 3 pointers the last 2 mins of the game.  They made some free throws and we weren't able to get to the line or make shot down the stretch.  Our guys played extremely hard and fought the entire time even through all the adversity within the last quarter.  It was very physical and we just came up short.

Despite the shortended game, it was great for our guys to pick up another win. During the 1st half we did not play our best on defense and we got caught taking risks like going for steals and leaving our feet to block shots. This led to them getting a few easy lay-ups and going to the free throw line several times. We really struggled on offense also and didn't get enough high quality shots. In the 2nd half, we played much better on defense and started getting the ball inside on offense. This lead to us winning the second half 11-3.
