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.”
Sansgaard, Tyler: 27 points: 9/12 on 3s
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."
