The guys came out in the first quarter ready to play as we went in to the second quarter with a 1 point lead. Unfortunately the second quarter was a different story as Pateros scored 30 points in the second quarter to our 8. They are a very well coached team with a lot of talent and we just couldnít keep up with them in the second quarter. I was proud of the way the guys didnít quit in the second half though. We made a few adjustments at halftime, but our shots werenít falling like they can. We have a tough game ahead of us going up to LakeRoosevelt on Tuesday.
We need to attack the basket with more aggressiveness against these bigger teams and not rely on the 3 point shot so much. Itís a tough league this year and there are a lot of good teams, so we have to keep improving as the year goes along to compete with the top tier teams. Oscar Ocampo led the way for the Trojans with 8 points.
Looking ahead we play on Tuesday, Jan. 11th, at LakeRoosevelt and Home on Friday, Jan. 14 against Liberty Bell.
