Coach Watson states that Wise came to play tonight and won 54-53. They are a very well coached scrappy team. Our girls came out flat and thought they were going to lay down because we are 14-1. I mentioned to them that on any given day you can be beat and tonight was the night.
We didn’t get it going until the 3rd quarter scoring 19 points. We also missed a lot of free- throws in the first half. When the score was tied 38 to 38 in the 4th quarter, we made a run and went up by 6 points. They rallied back to go up 47-46 with about 3: 30 left in the 4th quarter. We missed some defensive assignments that allowed them to get back in the game. When we went back up 49-47 just under the 2 minute mark, we had 2 other defensive break downs on our rotation.
I explained to our players that we have to stay mentally prepared and physically ready to pull out a win during the end of a game. Wise was the better team tonight, we will make some corrections and bounce back with Bowie coming in tomorrow night.
