Edwardsville head coach Dustin Battas: "We knew they were going to play their zone. We are just struggling, two for 23 from three. It is hard if you can't score around the rim and missing threes. It is hard to manufacture baskets that way. A credit to our guys, we had practice at 7:45 a.m. this morning and really executed things well in practice. Normal Community West is a good team. I was proud of our guys' effort."
