“In the first half we didn’t play to our fullest potential,” Prince said. “We didn’t do the best we could’ve at all.”

The second half looked a lot better for Hickman.  They played with more force, picking it up both offensively and defensively. They went on to win 53-22.

“We stepped up intensity a lot and played better defense,” said Prince.  “We’ve been working a lot on offensive rebounding in practice, which we did well tonight.”
