COACH DOUMA SAID
“We got the pace where we needed it. We did a better job rebounding in the second half. We were getting outrebounded badly in the first half and that didn’t allow us to get out and run. We were really able to take care of the boards in the second half—one and done and then we were able to sprint out in transition and got the pace to where it needed to be. We really played to our strengths that way. Terp’s (Alex Terpstra) three-pointer to put us up six was a big bucket and they used a timeout after it and that really spurred us forward. Alec Henrickson had a good second half—he had a great game overall and Marcus had a good second half. His points were good his rebounds were decent but he just moved the ball well and our post guys really benefitted from that.”
