Hemlock coach Matt Bauer: “It’s a good thing that you can’t have off nights on defense because we really didn’t shoot the ball very well tonight. In the fourth quarter, we played with a lot more poise than we did for the first time there. I was proud of how hard we played and that we kept our composure down the stretch. Finkbeiner hit some huge shots in the final quarter and Brayden Green knocked down a big three ball as well.”
