What a difference a day can make.
After struggling in their National Quarterfinal loss to Mohawk Valley on Thursday, the Minnesota West Lady Jay Basketball team bounced back in a major way, picking up a win over Nassau Community College (NY) by a score of 86-48. Minnesota West jumped out to a fast start, leading 12-4 in the first 5:40 of the game. The Lady Jays would continue to play well on both sides of the floor on their way to a 43-22 lead at halftime.
Minnesota West Lady Jay Basketball Head Coach Mike Fury said his team was running uphill all game in their National Quarterfinal against Mohawk Valley (NY) on Thursday night.
“Offensively we never got anything going from the get-go. We struggled all night. I don’t know if it was a combination of their D, or lack of our offensive aggressiveness. I don’t think we were aggressive enough. We just didn’t get a lot of good shots, hurried a couple of shots early. We just struggled all night.”
It’s a big day today for the Minnesota West Lady Jay Basketball team and Head Coach Mike Fury.
Minnesota West begins play today in the NJCAA Division III National Tournament as the #6 seeded Lady Jays will face #3 Mohawk Valley (NY) in a National Quarterfinal at 5:00pm (CT) and today’s game has been a long time coming for Lady Jay Head Coach Mike Fury.
