The score after the first half was 41-14 in favor of JCC.

“We completely got away from our strengths,” Cue continued. “They are a very good team, but our play made them look great. We need to take care of the ball better in upcoming games.”

The Bucs had 28 turnovers, compared to 17 for the Huskies. JCC also had 11 steals to the BEAs six.
