Comments From Boji Coach John Adams:
We were very happy with how the girls came out from the opening tip with tremendous energy. H-LP is a senior dominant team and we knew they would come in and battle. Magan and Kallyn got us going early with some nice shots and our defensive pressure was tremendous all night. Camry had a very strong second half, and we got huge minutes from our bench with Mia Meyer getting 7 points and Morgan Jensen scoring 6; all 12 of our girls contributed tonight, and that is always fun as a coach to see them get rewarded for their hard work. The girls did a very nice job of sharing the basketball and it was great to see the energy on the bench no matter who was in the game.
