At halftime, the coach offered the team this advice, "Don't take 3 point shots, work it around a little bit."
But the Cats couldn't hold on the the big lead. Buffalo's Mark Bortz knocked in some 3s to add to Calvin Cage's 24 point effort; 6-10 3 pointers and 9-16 from the field.
Four Cats were in double figures.
In comparing the play of the 2nd half Cats to the First half, Coach Carmody was puzzled about the difference between the halves, "The Ball was snappy, the ball was moving, but why do we have these letdowns."
And maybe there's an opportunity for some volunteer coaching: "If there's anyone who knows how to get someone out of a shooting slump let me know 'cause Winston's in a slump."
