                  This feels like it's going to be a long game.

                  The Meyer kid can really score.

                  That was not a pleasant first 4 minutes.

                  X with 4 to lead the Shocks, Meyer with 7 to lead Coastal.

                    Great start to 7-0 and then.....a little lax on both ends.

                      Good first couple of minutes, but that last segment was horrendous. It is obvious we don't or can't value the ball based on the first few games this season.

                          Defense and rebounding is D-3 right now.
