Forbes on the loss. “Yeah I was really happy with our effort. Our guys came out and executed our game plan. We knew we couldn’t get in a track meet with them, we had to kind of mud it up a little bit, slow it down. And we did a great job with that. We just didn’t score enough points, and they had a little run and that was the ball game.”

BRLD Head Coach Cory Meyer says the Bulldogs will be a tough challenge. “They’re obviously ranked. And I think they’ve only got two losses. And they’ve got a really good inside game, and they got a few guards that can shoot really well, and it should be a good game. And I know they’re going to be well rested, they didn’t have a game tonight. But hopefully our kids can get enough rest, and be ready to go.”
