Comments From Boji Head Coach John Adams:

“I was proud of our effort tonight. West Lyon is one of the best defensive teams in the State so we knew it would be tough on the offensive end. I thought for three quarters we battled on defense, we just had a hard time taking care of the basketball and not fouling in the second quarter. This three game road stretch against three of the top teams in our league has been brutal, but I love how this group continues to work hard and stay together.”

Comments From Okoboji Head Coach Ryan Stumbo:

Give West Lyon credit tonight, they shot well from the outside and made a lot of hustle plays to give themselves good opportunities.  We are going to have to find ways to defend better and make it more difficult for teams to score.  We will keep working hard to get better in the areas that we need to move forward.
