[Saturday] we played two quality teams. Offensively, we are much, much better. We are starting to attack the basket. The difference is we’re scoring in the 40s now and we’re still not shooting well.”
Bentzler said the squad took “baby steps” and expects the Titans to be better as a result of the tourney, despite taking three losses in the eight-team, two-day event. There were highlights despite the losses.
