Bball scrimmage with UVIC

UVIC SCRIMMAGE

Well there is definitely room for improvement, good thing it is early October. We lost all 4 of the 12 minute quarters to Uvic, who look to be a handful in the Canada West this year.  We did battle and lost a couple of tight ones in the last two, but the first two we did not do a good job of looking after the basketball and matching their intensity (losing by 8 and 9 respectively).  There are definately some things we will need to clean up technically, and on the defensive end I feel we can extend and challenge ourselves more as individuals and as a group. We also need do a better job with regards to decision making and looking after the basketball. I thought we did a better job on the glass and getting back defensively, which is encouraging.  Right now it is all about consistency and playing hard and some individuals are struggling with that. This will need to change, or roles will have to change. I think with several new faces this group will take a little time to come together, we must continue to all put the work in to make that happen.
