Unfortunately, it couldn’t be any more different ” we laid an egg on Sunday and played the worst game of the season at the most crucial time of the season.
We were lucky to only have been beaten by 12 points.
We shot a horrific 28 per cent from the field and 18 per cent from the land of down plenty. We didn’t execute our game plan and we didn’t play Wildcat basketball.
The only positive to come from the game was that we only lost by a small margin after having played so disappointingly. If we had only converted five more field goals, we would have added an extra 10 to 12 points and applied scoreboard pressure.
Consequently, we have had a brutal evaluation session this past day, and the honest feedback from coaches and peers will only help us improve from this game.
Now that’s the end of all the negativity ” we are extremely excited to be back in front of our fans and more so to be hearing it will be a sell-out with 13,000 people.
To me it’s incredible, so there would be nothing better than to get back on track with a dominating performance.
We know what needs to be done and the coaches have put in an excellent game plan, which has proven to be successful in the past.
I look forward to writing a more positive article next week and discussing what needs to be done to get game three in New Zealand.
