The Wildcats had a rough start at the beginning of the game. Although they struggled early on, they were able to still battle it out for the win. “At the start of the game we definitely could have limited the amount of threes and open looks they got and made,” senior Cole Kirschner said. “We did a good job making free throws but thats about it. I personally think it was an ugly game for all of us but we still came out on top.”

Junior Peyton Moore looks for a path to the basket, he totaled 11 points on two of three shooting from the field, as well as sinking seven free throws. Although the Wildcats offense was able to put up a decent amount of points, a tough third quarter both offensively and defensively hindered the Wildcats chances to come away with a victory. “They came out in the second half with a lot of energy and they used that to their advantage,” Moore said. “We also had some empty offensive possessions in the third and they also took advantage of that.”
