court ranged fast to frantic as the host Blue Devils raced past Malone 71-48

us that we have a lot to work on. We just had too many turnovers, we have to
work on catching and finishing on the break,² said Coach Merna.
³But we needed to come out with much more energy then we did against
Gouverneur and we did that. Gene Bouyer had a lot to do with that and Jake
Rishe gave us a spark hitting his first two shots. Jake didn¹t get chance to
show it tonight but he has been rebounding very well in practice.²
