COACHES QUOTE: “We came out with good intensity after a long break. We weren’t shooting the ball very well, but we did what we had to do to get to the free-throw line. After a long break, you never know how well you’re going to come out, but our intensity was really good.” — Vanoss head coach Dillon Snow.
Team Record: Vanoss 5-7.
