Coach Sean Dreiling commented, “Ness is a really good team and got off to a hot shooting start. With them, you kind of have to pick your poison. Do you want to get dunked on, or do you want to give up threes and hope they miss? We gave up the three and unfortunately they made shots.”

The Trego Boys’ Basketball Team will play at Stockton on January 18.
