From Coach Hinson:
“It was nice to come out of break and start with a solid win. We're a little banged up right now so it was really nice to see a lot of guys step up and contribute. Obviously it was exciting to see Tyler Sansgaard step up and break the record for 3-pointers made in a game. The team was having a lot of fun when he got hot and they were all very happy for him. Not only was he 9/12 on 3's, but he made 9 in a row.”

Stahl, Trent: 10 points: 4 total rebounds
Merfeld, Luke: 9 points: 6 total rebounds
The Cubs played Hampton-Dumont on the road on Tuesday night.
From Coach Neubauer: "Tuesday was a good learning experience for us. We started off the game without the same energy that we normally do, and coupled that with a hot shooting start for Hampton, it lead to us having to dig out of a hole a little bit. We had 16 turnovers in the game, but 12 were in the first period. I was proud of our kids for weathering the storm, and picking the pace back up and grinding out a road win. As always, we need to keeping working hard and improving see we get reach the goals that that we set for the season."
On Tuesday December 20 the Nevada girls played PCM at PCM. The Cubs played a great game winning 62-37.

Nevada played PCM on Tuesday, and picked up their second win in their last five games. Coach Hinson was very happy with Nevada’s performance in Monroe
Coach Hinson said that Nevada executed at both ends of the floor very even while being in a tough environment to play in at PCM. He also said that it was their most complete game yet this season.
Nevada’s constant pressure on defense created a lot of turnovers and made PCM uncomfortable on offense. Trent Stahl and Om’Unique Wilkerson played well, both racking up over 15 points.
Some things that Hinson would like to work on more in practice is consistency on both ends of the floor. Hinson wants to make sure that they stay hungry in practice
Hampton-Dumont is up next for Nevada, and they would like to win that game so they can get back to a .500 record.
