Head coach Brandon Clubb commented, "Don Bosco was a big time game with a big time atmosphere. We didn't play 4 quarters of basketball. We let them get back into the game the second half and didn't make stops when we needed to. We were still in the game with a minute and half left and couldn't make our free throws. Then we were in a situation where we were forced to foul and Don Bosco did hit their free throws. "
