“Overall I think the boys played O.K. tonight,” Head coach Robert Jackson siad. “We didn’t hit the shots that we needed to hit and we missed a couple of free throws that would have helped out, but overall it was O.K. and Charles Henderson is a really good team. It is a shame that we don’t get to play them again.” Jackson said looking forward, the team needs to work on man-to-man coverage.

“We did not cover man-to-man well tonight,” Jackson said. “I think for us, we need to work on that and then we will be good.”

The Bulldogs host Georgiana on Thursday for their next game.
