The game was tense early when the Buccaneers took the lead at 3-2, then things calmed down as the more talented Wolfpack took control. The Pack had a 19-point lead at the half and won by 34. We did struggle with the 3PT shot in the first half (11%) but shot 50% from the arc in the second. As expected, we dominated the game, time for a road trip.
The story of this game was defense. This team may be one of Keatts’ best defensive teams.
- 11 steals
- 22 total turnovers
- 29 points off turnovers
- The Bucs made only 9 shots in the first half, 19 for the game.

- Very pleased with defensive effort.
- They worked on full court defense, and it showed.
- DJ Horne was our leading rebounder, Keatts says he needs to have a conversation with our bigs.
