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. 

Scoring: James Hutchcraft: 8, Logan Havner: 5, Cameron Heiser: 5, Drew Edwards: 3

We started the Eldon Tournament against a very talented team.  We struggled offensively but were able to only be down 3 by half because of our defensive effort.  They came out making some outside shots which opened up their inside game.  We weren't able to find the bottom of the basket in the 2nd half.   We will play Marquette in the 2nd round.

We played a really good first half and led Eugene 32-26.  However, we struggled to score in the 3rd quarter and they made their free throws in the 4th quarter. We fought really hard in front of a great crowd just came up short.  Drake Gaines made 3 huge 3 point shots and Zach Wheeler led the team with 12 points in the first half.

Our guys came out and competed hard throughout the game. So. Boone took a lead early because of a hot start offensively. We had several stretches in the game that we would do several positive things in a row, but one unforced mistake would unravel all the ground we made up. This included unforced turnovers, not getting defensive rebounds after long defensive stands, and not contesting shots on defense. These mistakes made it really hard for us to ever close the 7-10 point gap that existed for most of the game, despite how we were scoring and sharing the ball on offense. We also struggled from the FT line and shot 7 of 18, while they shot 16 of 28. There was a stretch at the end of the 3rd quarter and start of the 4th that we had a string of turnovers and they made several shots and free-throws. This caused their lead to increase to 20 points with about 5 minutes left in the game. It would of been very easy for our guys to give up at that point, but they continued to play hard and actually cut the lead to 9 points late in the quarter. I was proud of how our guys continued to compete. If we can play like we did for long stretches during this game and eliminate a few of the mistakes, we should be able to finish our season strongly in the last 4 games.

Scoring: Logan Havner: 15, James Hutchcraft: 14, Dylan Long: 11, Drew Edwards: 7

This was our second match-up againist a freshman/sophmore team this season. The game started well for us and we played really good defense in the first half. It was a low scoring back and forth game and we were able to take a 5 point lead into halftime. It the second half we held them to two points until about halfway through the 3rd quarter. After that, our turnovers, poor shots, and fouling caught up with us.  They held a 18-17 lead at the start of the 4th quarter. In the 4th, we continued to struggle with fouling and they went to the line and made their freethrows. We had a lot of oppurtunities to make freethrows also, but we weren't able to capitalize on them. We shot 3 of 15 from the FT line and that included 4 front ends of 1-and-1s. On the other hand they shot 13 of 19 from the FT line, including shooting 14 FTs in the 4th quarter. In a game that ended with a point an 11 point difference, these FTs had a major impact. With only 5 games remaining, we will be working hard to get back on track quickly.
