Big fourth lifts Bobcats past Gators

Gator assistant coach Daniel Batson said the coaches were proud of the way Baker battled and kept things close the first three quarters.

“I honestly think it was a game of emotions,” Batson said. “For 24 minutes (the first three quarters) we frustrated them and took them out of rhythm.

“We played about as near perfect basketball as we could play. They (the Bobcats) somehow, someway turned their anger for the first three quarters into forcing us to make mental mistakes and they took off.”

Batson went on to say the first three quarters showed that the Gators are capable of staying with a talented, well coached team.

“We played our best IQ game of the season,” he said. “For 24 minutes I can’t be more proud of the way we executed our game plan. It is very frustrating to know that for the last eight minutes it wasn’t the game plan, but the emotions of the game that got us.”

Stewart was the picture of consistency for the Bobcats on his way to a game high 26 points scoring 13 points in the first half and 13 in the second half. Carnely added 18 points and Anderson nine points.

Morgan topped the Gators with 15 points. Taylor pitched in nine. Hicks scored eight and Stroheker seven.
