“We played with as much heart as a guy could ask,” Moundridge coach Vance Unrau said. “Defensively made them earn it and offensively we got the looks we wanted vs their ‘Diamond in 1.’ I keep telling kids to prepare for their moment. Meaning spend the extra time in the gym working on your game. I can't guarantee that moment will ever present itself, but I can tell you that if you don't invest you will never have that chance to take advantage of your opportunity. We had guys step up and defend and knock down shots and give us a chance at the end. I'm disappointed we didn't win but I'm proud of these guys effort. Need to keep growing as we head into tournament week.”

Remington Creed led Moundridge with 15 points, followed by Dillon Vogts with 12 and Brady Helms with 10.
