Boji Girls Coach John Adams

“I was really proud of how the girls came out with energy from the opening tip and played that way for 32 minutes. This group is really buying into the defensive end of the court as we’ve held our last four opponents to an average of 30 points per game. Ali Goehring got us going on offense early with some nice 3 pointers. Kallyn had a phenomenal game with a triple-double and she continues to do so much for us on both ends of the court. Magan had a great defensive game and then got her shot really going in the second half and Camry and Grace were very dominant in the paint on both ends of the court. Our bench also gave us some great energy and minutes tonight and it’s great to see all 16 girls contribute.”
