COACH DOUMA SAID
“Davenport is a very good team and they shot it uncharacteristically well. We shot it about as poor as we possibly can. Shooting 3-23 from the arc puts is in a tough spot. Last night we were pretty good defensively and tonight we weren’t good on defense at all. Too often we are letting how we are playing on offense dictate how we are playing on the defensive end.”
