BOYCEVILLE — The Bulldog boys hosted the Mondovi Buffaloes on Tuesday, February 4th in a game of hoops that had the Bulldogs being stampeded by the Buffaloes, 37-67.
Boyceville first-year head coach Colby Dotseth thought that this was the Bulldogs’ worst effort overall.
“I thought this was our worst game we had played all year. We got done early and seemed to really shut down. We struggled with getting penetration and open shots from their zone defense.”
He continued talking about their demise, “We didn’t give the effort we are capable of on the defensive glass. We struggled with talking and our help defense. We also gave them way too many second and third shot opportunities throughout the game. We also struggled with taking care of the basketball as we turned the ball over way too many times to give us a shot in competing in the basketball game.”
Obviously, it is a game that the Bulldogs want to put behind them.
The Buffaloes scored 40 points in the first half to the Bulldogs’ 18. The second half was a bit better with the Buffaloes scoring 27 to the Bulldogs’ 19, but of course by then the damage had been done.
Brendan Sempf led the Bulldogs in scoring with 14 points and Logan Knudtson had 10 points.
The Buffaloes currently have an overall record of 9-8 and are 5-5 in the Dunn-St. Croix conference, which puts them in fifth place. After Friday night’s game, the Bulldogs now have an overall record of 4-11 and 3-7 in conference play.
The Bulldogs played Cadott, Monday, February 10th at home and will host the Durand Panthers on Thursday the 13th.
