Tolsia Head Coach Todd Maynard
“… Even with the loss I think our guys really came together tonight. We battled to the very end and had a chance to send it to overtime but came up short. I thought the technical in the third quarter changed the whole game and usually try not to say anything about the officials because they have a tough job but we were up five with the ball when it was called. They hit both free throws and then hit a three pointer to tie the game and seized all of the momentum.”
“… I’m encouraged with our effort and togetherness tonight. We are getting closer to where we want to be. We have another tough road game next week against another section opponent Van on Friday.”
