The Crush pressure D proved to be too much for Lakewood as a strong full court press disrupted and trapped the Panthers in the half court. The Crush took control on the defensive end filling the passing lanes and snatching anything without purpose. The Crush finished with a staggering 21 steals and led the Panthers from the opening tip.
The Crush offense was also on point Friday night as 7 players finished in double figures and every man had ink on the score sheet. Joseph Atangana led the Crush once again with a strong game on both ends finishing with 21 points and 11 boards. Jarrett Hart matched Atangana with 21 while grabbing 5 rebounds and adding 4 assists.
