The bigs were not the problem (except for free throws). The outside shooting was horrible. Ancrum needs to get back to his consistent shooting. I was shocked to read that Webster had 18 points. Webster was in the gym shooting after the game.

Oak Hills Christian comes in from Bemidji, MN. Bemidji is the home to mythical Paul Bunyan and is the self-proclaimed "curling capital" of the U.S. FYI, Paul's curling stone below does NOT reside there (Port Arthur, ON Canada). ;)

True and false, actually. Used to be the slab of bacon, now it's Paul Bunyan's axe.

Usiosefe is out for the rest of season with a hip injury. Obviously, it has been a problem since at least the Butler game. So the $64K question is why was he starting in every game since then. That is a headscratcher amongst a bunch of headscratchers this year.

107-45 is the final. OHCC was outmanned, undermanned (they brought only 7 players), overmatched and I will stop there. They do deserve kudos for their willingness to make the long bus trip to and from Macomb.

Bring on Konchar and Daum.
