We had a disappointing loss to a very good Cambridge team, losing 55-91. Cambridge is a very good team with a number of high level shooters–so the frustration isn’t necessarily in the loss as much as it is in the margin. Allowing 91 points is unacceptable and we have a number of things to shore up defensively.
Two areas that we thought were critical against Cambridge were rebounding, where we felt we had an advantage, and taking care of the ball. Unfortunately we struggled in both areas…losing the rebounding battle 30-39 and having 26 turnovers which resulted in 31 points for Cambridge.
Drew VanEerden had another quality game, ending with 18 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals. Colby Knutson played very well again with 17 points, Conner Hartmann added 8 points and 6 rebounds, and Carter Whitman had 7.
On a bright side, our big man, Zach Gazda was able to go through a practice today for the first time since December 15th. He is not expected to play in games this week, but we hope to have him back soon. Great to see him on the court again.
