That is how Glen Rose head coach Wayne Roberts described the Tigers’ opening round loss to Trinity Christian in the Caprock Tournament on Monday.
“Ridiculous. It was ridiculous,” said Roberts. “We didn’t play like we needed to play to win, and I’m not taking anything away from them, they played well.”
Glen Rose started slow but was still able to take a 13-12 lead to finish up the first quarter.
However, the second quarter was all Trinity Christian, and would eventually be the downfall for the Tigers.
“We couldn’t score under the basket, and it was real physical,” said Roberts. “The game got out of hand after the second quarter and they went into halftime, up 31-20.”
Ryan Bruce was the only Tiger in double figures with 20 points, and the next highest scorer was Jorge Espino with eight.”
“We got in foul trouble and the bench didn’t step up,” said Roberts. “Jorge (Espino) is sick and Ty (Taylor) is dealing with an ankle sprain. We just didn’t shoot well and we didn’t execute.”
Glen Rose will try to get back into the win column when they face Odessa High in the second round of the tournament.
After the Caprock Tournament, Glen Rose will not return to action until Brownwood comes to town on Jan. 9 with sub-varsity beginning at 5 p.m.
