Coach Marlin talked about his team's effort tonight in the post game interview.
"I thought we went out tonight and showed some pretty good energy at both ends of the court," Marlin said. "We shot the ball well and played hard defensively without a lot of mistakes.
"We got off to a good start. We were able to score on the first two possessions of the ball game off of set plays. We did a good job defensively early in the ball game, and then we got lackadaisical and they started attacking us."
