FROM THE COACH:
“Spirit and energy were our keys words going into Minneapolis this weekend. Based on our past games, we knew that we were capable of greatness, but also capable of falling short at the wrong moment. One of the main threats in FLBS roster was #14, Micah Moan. The sophomore guard has shown an amazing ability to score since last year, and we knew we had to take care of him in order to perform well. Our defence revealed itself to be extremely solid. In both games, we locked FLBS under 70 points. Even though we didn’t get the result we were looking for in the second match-up, I’m extremely proud of the guys for what they have shown this weekend.
Game one, our offence saw an amazing performance from Joshua Armstrong! Scoring 34 pts while stealing the ball 5 times, he and Jordan Lawson gave our team a combined 59 points that night!
Game 2 was not as fruitful in offence though. We struggled all game to score, seeing the ball rolling inside of the hoop during clutch momenta to jump out a second later. I know that the team tried everything to score and win the game, but it was just not our night offensively. Hopefully, we will be able to put this kind of night behind us for the last 4 match-ups of the season against CMU and Leech Lake.” - Pierre Dubreuil

PLAYER’S VIEW:
“This weekend was a very good learning experience for the team. In the first game, we got the win with a strong defence. We communicated a lot on the defensive end and to me, that was the best defence we have played this season and it’s only going to get better from here. The second game we lost due to poor execution on the offensive end. But no one left with there heads hanging because we know we are capable of great things. We just have to get to the gym and work even harder.” - Jordan Armstrong
