"Our second half was absolutely fabulous on both ends of the floor," coach Roger De Boer said in a phone interview. "The way we defended ... Logan Carlson had five blocks in the second half alone. It was pretty exciting for us to be able to close out the week and get a really nice W against a really good team."
