Ss. Peter & Paul coach Blake Oswald said this was a solid game. “The boys did really well finding the best opportunities to score,” Oswald said. “I thought we played unselfish ball from tipoff to the final buzzer. We were able to break their full-court press the whole game, which led to easy points down low. Defensively, we switched things up quite a bit trying to confuse their offense. Clayton Schuster did exceptionally well down low. He, along with Brayden Viertel, were able to read the defense, which led to some passes over the top.”
