"Tonight, I thought we were a lot more consistent across the board than we have been most of the season. Colten made a switch to his old putter, and it immediately paid dividends. He was excellent from start to finish," Coach Mize said. "The rest of the guys were solid. I was especially proud of the back end of the lineup. Reece Chapman shot a career-low 43, and the 45s from both Logan Simpson and Kaden Acton could have been even better. "
