"We got out of the gate a little slow," said Alta-Aurelia mentor Randy Bissen, "and give Sioux Central credit. they made some shots in the first quarter. The rest of the game, we played better basketball and really did a nice job of forcing turnovers and playing fast. They cut it within six late in the game, but we kept our composure, took care of the basketball, and made our free throws down the stretch, as we went 13-15 from the line in the 2nd half. It was a good team win as everybody contributed."
