COACH DOUMA SAID

“We struggled with keeping them off the foul line in the second half. They got into the bonus early as a result we couldn’t pressure and get the pace where it needed to be. It’s no secret we need to have pace and pressure because of our lack of size and Doane got the game where they needed to.”
