Coach Travis Steinhoff thought that the game helped his team gain some confidence. “I thought it gave us some confidence . . . we’re shooting the ball better,” Coach Steinhoff said.

The Jeffs got a boost from Chancellor Amundson ’20 who scored 18 points. Cayman DeBoer ’18 and Blake Bauer ’17 both had big games as well, as DeBoer had 16 points on the night and Bauer finished with 15 points. Both Bauer and DeBoer finished the night with nine rebounds.
