“We have a lot of work to do,” said head coach Trevor Costello.” We’re a sub .500 team struggling right now on both ends of the floor.”

Costello gave credit to the Lords’ size and athleticism.

“Height’s killing us and it did again tonight,” said Costello. “We didn’t protect the ball, we threw the ball away, their points off turnovers was ridiculous. It wasn’t a good shot for sure.”

Wolves guard Jansen Balmaceda said he thought his team was ready to handle the powerful Lords, especially after beating the Fleming Phoenix the previous night.

“We came off a good win. I thought we were prepared,” said Balmaceda regarding.
