coleman coach Clark Swerdan: They opened the game on an 8-0 run and led the whole game. We did make a nice run and cut the lead to 1 in the middle of the 2nd quarter. But they closed the first half on a 15-4 run. They blew the game open for good in the 3rd quarter.
Connor Riley is a stud and we had little answer for him. We did a pretty good job on him in the first half, holding him to 12 pts. But he scored 17 in the 3rd. He’s the best player in the conference.
Overall we played pretty good. Their 1-2 punch was just way too much for us tonight. The guys played hard, we were just outmatched tonight.
We have another tough conference game Thursday night/
We are now 4-3 (3-2 in MSAC). We host Carson City on Thursday.
Coleman JV also lost 42-31. Bo Carbeno had 9 pts.
