Coach Crollard report….
It was a defensive battle through three quarters as the Trojans were down three at the end of the third quarter 34 to 31. Pateros held the rebounding edge due to Abe Wilson and Brandton Harvey crashing the offensive glass. We just couldn’t block those two big guys out. Our players need to understand the importance of finding a man and putting a body on them. We don’t have the size to over power teams.
As the head coach I feel I need to put the blame on myself. We need to go back and work on the little things that will allow our team to be successful. I need to find 5 guys who will work well together out on the floor and who will use the fundamentals that they have learned over the course of the season.
We definitely had our chances to win this game, unfortunately we couldn’t convert easy baskets in the paint, we had 26 turnovers, and our free throw shooting was 12 for 24.
We played well on the defensive end of the floor, but couldn’t execute offensively and our shots just weren’t falling.
Schuyler Neff led the team with 9 points and Osbaldo Escoto added 8. Rob Pittman led the team with 7 rebounds. Abe Wilson and Bandton Harvey scored 14 apiece for Pateros.
