From the Coaches Corner

Head Coach Neal Goldman of Jesuit stated “we played really well coming off a loss last night and it’s good to come off and get a win. We need to work on boxing out and getting rebounds.”

Head Coach Josh Davalli of Loyola comments “they shot the lights out, it’s going to be tough to beat a team when the are 11 from 16 from 3, with their size, they had and the physical play that they played they executed a great game plan. But I was happy with our efforts overall, kids worked hard, they just made too many shots at the end for us to make a come back.”
