COACH’S QUOTE: “It was a good quality win against a good team on a neutral court. Our defense was good the whole game. We held them to 24 percent shooting and 5-of-23 three-point shooting. We did a good job against their complimentary players. Mouse had to take a lot of shots to get his 24 points. We weren’t great offensively, but we did enough to win,” — Latta head coach Donnie Husband.

Record: Latta 14-3; Ketchum 13-5.
