“(We) played (a) terrible first half,” Marble Falls head coach Rick Hoover said. “We were flat (and) looked very slow in (the) first half.”
So Hoover outlined the players’ options during the break.
“They had two choices: Lay down and let this continue or step up and play like we know how,” he said. “(I’m) very proud of (the) second half.”
