"We had balanced scoring in both games," he said of Regis and Osseo-Fairchild. “We have a number of players that can lead us in scoring each night." As to game specifics, Coach Hause said of the Ramblers that, "Against Regis we were able to limit looks by their top shooters," while of the Thunder that things went the wrong way initial- ly, before turning around.

“We started slow vs. O-F and needed to pick the pace up," he said. "Osseo-Farichiuld was faster and more physical than we were in the first half. We made some adjustments and were able to get some shots from the low post in the second half."
