We also shot the ball tremendously well, shooting almost 50 percent from 3 and almost 60 percent for the game. Our game is coming full circle, but we have a lot of stuff we can work on going forward, especially with the meat of our schedule coming up through January and February. We are very proud of our guys and the things the growth they have shown and effort they are giving.”
