Coach Jeff Bowen was really impressed with the execution of pick and rolls that his team showed. He noted that game was probably the best example in his 30 years as a coach. Hitting three 3-pointers within two minutes in the third quarter really blew open the game. After that he was able to make sure that a lot of his players received playing time which made the coaches and players all happy. The team is 3-1 in competition now.
