After the game, Shamrock coach Al Schrauben said, “Good comeback from a slow start, and then actually took the lead in the third quarter about half way through, and then I thought we got a little sloppy with the ball. Then when that happened they picked up a little energy and got too many easy buckets. Overall, other than the first four minutes of the game and the last four or five minutes, I was reasonably pleased. We rebounded much better than we did last time. They are a good ball club, and we have to play a little better to beat those kind off teams, and not have moments when we get stupid.”
The Wolfpack moves to a nine and one overall record on the season. The Shamrocks record moves to five and four. Their next game will be at home on Thursday night against Fulton.
