CBC scored 20 points and had nine rebounds but it was an entire team effort which gave them the victory according to coach Alex Compton.
“I thought they all played hard,” said Compton.
“I really appreciate my guys’ efforts. I thought pretty much the whole game, of course there were spots, but I thought pretty much the whole game we were energetic, all over the place, covering grounds, getting to the loose ball. The things that really matter.”
