Coach Fessenden’s Comments:
“When you hold a team to 22 points for the game, you know that you played some good defense. When you do it in the State Tournament, you know that you had a great defensive game. Our press was effective in the first half. We switched presses at halftime and were able to pick up several turnovers early in the second half. In the third quarter our three-point shooting came around and we hit five threes to run our lead up to 36 points. This was a super start to the state tournament for us.
