the opening quarter 19-17 before exploding for 26 in the second to go
into halftime up 45-34 and did not look back.
“We were not weak in the game we were playing but weak in holding on
to our leads. We have been working on those scenarios in practice and
the players are trying to respond and responded in a big way today”
