“The boys played well defensively tonight. We did a decent job of rebounding, but we need to be able to finish the put backs. We missed a lot of easy shots. We have struggled somewhat on offense the last couple games, and in practice. We just aren’t making shots. I know the boys will continue to work in practice and hopefully our last game against Davis County we can get the offense going. Overall, all the boys played hard tonight,” Chariton Head Coach Dan Reynolds said.
