FORSAN â Forsan girlsâ basketball coach Robert Hillger didnât have much explanation for Tuesdayâs 44-41 loss to Stanton at home.
He said Stanton beat Forsan fair and square.
âI couldnât figure out our identity Tuesday. At the beginning of the game, really the first half, weâre pushing and running and theyâre making shots and weâre not. We like to push and run and we were down five (at the half) anyway, so I was like âAlright, weâre going to slow down the pace of the game. Weâre going to dictate what we want to do and not let them dictate what we want to do.â
