“In the first half we played our style of basketball. We were controlling the tempo of the game and we were playing good team ball,” said head coach Lonnie Mason. “In the second half they got frustrated and they started pulling away from us. We started trying to play their style of ball and we don’t have the talent for that right now.”
The Cougars will play in the First Southern National Bank Christmas Classic on Thursday. The Cougars will play Caldwell County at home at 8 p.m.
