The Minden High Lady Tiders lost to Lakeside 33-26 Monday night, and head coach Jacob Brown wasn’t too happy about his team’s play.
“I thought the first quarter and a half, was the most embarrassing and pathetic excuse of basketball by my team in the last three years,” he said. “Defensively we’re pathetic, offensively we’re pathetic and we didn’t rebound. You name it, and we did it wrong.”
Lakeside scored all the points in the first quarter and took a 16-0 lead. Minden out-scored them 9-2 to cut the lead to 18-9 at the half.
“Lakeside showed up in the first quarter and we didn’t,” Brown said. “But in the second, we hung around and still gave ourselves a chance to win. A lot of their points came on easy baskets after our turnovers. Until we improve in that part of the game, we’ll continue to get pressed.”
