Comments From Head Coach Ryan Stumbo:

We thought we battled well in the first half but were unable to sustain the little things defensively tonight throughout the entirety of the game. Boyden-Hull took advantage of that late in the third and going into the fourth to close the game strong. Their length, pressure, and help side rotations made it tough for us to find consistent rhythm tonight offensively. Give them credit. They are a really good team and closed the game well tonight. We will focus on the positives and learn what we can from this game for the beginning of post season play next week.
