"At the end of the game, we always try to have two options,'' said Logan coach Mark Hatcher, "especially when you only have 10 seconds to work with. Nick George did a really good job of popping out and leaving the layup open and guarding the first 3-point shot. We should have had a second 3-point shot, but the screener didn't do what he was supposed to, and I don't know if the ball ever got there anyway.''
Hatcher said he knew Saturday's game was going to be low scoring, especially with his squad trying to find its offensive rhythm.
"We've played Catholic four times now, and it's always a low score,'' Hatcher said. "I thought we did a great job of defending them and not giving them a lot of layups. They only had a couple of easy shots.
"I was really proud of our guys for battling back, but we have yet to find the guy on our team that can get me 15, 12, 10 points every night."
C.J. Williams scored all 11 of his points in the final 10 minutes for Logan. Worm Street added nine points, six rebounds and three steals and Reynolds led the Wildcats' 30-26 edge off the boards by grabbing nine rebounds.
For Catholic, Zach Casto had eight rebounds and George chipped in a pair of nice assists, turning down open 8-foot jumpers to drop the ball to a teammate for a layup.
"It's definitely better to learn when you're winning as opposed to when you're losing,'' George said. "It's all there for us - it's just in pieces. We'll have lapses where we'll do things like make a long pass that's unnecessary. We have to start working harder in practice and realize we can do this, and just go at it even harder.''
