Ss. Peter & Paul coach Joe Herzog said meeting the Oakland team for the third straight time the Warriors knew what to expect.  
“Their athleticism is so overwhelming as they crash boards and dive for balls the entire game,” Herzog said.  “We were able to stay within reach for the first half but their full press wore on us and they expanded their lead in the third.  I was pleased with the way our boys played.  More desire and heart than in the past games.  We boxed out but just couldn’t keep them from rebounding over the top as they out jumped us all night.  Offensively we continue to learn how to move without the ball and take what the defense is giving us.”
