Logan's strong effort not enough against Richmond

Berries play well but fall short against Richmond

(Continued)

“We walk out of here and have a lot of respect for the basketball team we just played. I thought that they showed great signs of team chemistry. I thought the way they attacked and played and went to the offensive glass was just as good as we’ve faced all year.”

The Berries are still looking for their first NCC win of the season. They just about had one against the No. 11-ranked Red Devils, one of the favorites going in. Richmond has a showdown with No. 16-ranked Marion next Friday at home.

“Let’s give credit to where credit’s due. Richmond’s a good team,” Pat Skaggs said. “They’re 11-1 and rated No. 11 in the state, so I thought our guys came out swinging today and didn’t back down.

“The first two minutes of the third quarter just really killed us. In my opinion that was probably the turning point in the game. To our guys’ credit, they didn’t back down or quit. They stayed right with it and got right back into the game, cut it down to one. We still probably made a few turnovers too many.”

The Berries were hungry to get back on the court following the disappointment at Marion.

“Looking back in it now, it looks like we maybe learned something from the Marion game,” Pat Skaggs said. “I thought we came out focused and ready. I thought we did a pretty good job of sharing the ball. I think we were just mentally ready and I’m really proud of our guys. Obviously we’re not into moral victories or anything.

“But for the most part I thought we did a good job and just played with a little more passion and focus. We just played a little bit smarter and I think for us to play with these elite teams, Marion and Richmond, I think we have to really play smart.”

Logan travels to Lewis Cass on Wednesday for a makeup game. The Berries overcame a fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Kings 77-68 back on Dec. 3 in county tournament play.
