Canyon Lake got going two quarters too late in their loss to Llano on Tuesday night at the Hawk gym as Llano jumped out to a 35-20 halftime lead and CL could not close the gap to get back into this game against the Yellowjackets.
“We gave them too much space,” Head Coach Luke Chapman said. “Llano did a good job of speeding up the game with their press and we have to do a better job of getting a better defense against them.”
Nic Adams and Sean Nolan both ended with double figure point totals but CL’s 33% shooting accuracy was not a good indication of good things for the Hawks in this contest.
Adams finished with 24 points and putting that number into perspective. Adams had 26 points last season for the entire year.
“We need to work on getting stops on defense,” Adams said. “Their ball movement got them the lead, but we need to contest more shots.”
“This wasn’t a bad game as we had improved on what we were working on against the press,” Adams continued.”
Nolan was his usual self by controlling the inside and being perfect from the floor with his three shots.
