They are an all around team, with four players with 60 points or more, and their leading scoring being Faith Pope with 79.
Demon head coach Bryce Smeins said this is one of those games that you’re excited for, but right out of the break is going to be tough.
“It’s definitely a tough start in January, so we have to get ready to play them, and we’re going to see pressure, a full court man and some zone and man-to-man defense,” Smeins said, “So we’re just trying to figure our ways to guard them and take care of business with them.”
