The Capital City Go-Go had trouble gaining momentum in a tough 132-106 loss against the Wisconsin Herd. The Go-Go started off the first quarter flat. As a result, there were multiple turnovers and missed shots at the rim.
The Go-Go picked it up in the second quarter. However, they still gave the ball away often and wasted many possessions. Defensive stops were hard to come by, and the Herd were able to get easy looks whenever they wanted them.
Shooting only 28.6% from beyond the arc in the first half, the Go-Go still weren’t able to gain the momentum needed to take the lead. Easy shots under the rim weren’t going in and risky passes cost them frequently.
The third quarter was a little bit better, as more players started to get involved on offense. There were spurts of quick defensive rotations from the Go-Go, and faster closeouts prevented shooters from knocking down as many threes. Unfortunately, none of these plays were consistent enough to change the outcome of the game.
The Wisconsin Herd controlled the rest of the game, closing out the third quarter with a 10-2 run in the final minute. The struggle continued in the fourth quarter, as the Go-Go were not being able to stop the Herd from scoring. Wisconsin took advantage of multiple mismatches down in the post, and extended their lead to 26 to end the game.
Admiral Schofield had a hot hand many times throughout the game, finishing with 24 points and 6 rebounds.
Jalen Hudson had 21 points and 3 rebounds.
Justin Robinson shot 4-of-6 beyond the arc, with 20 points, 5 steals, and 4 assists.
Chris Chiozza had 11 points, 13 assists, and 6 rebounds.
Kellen Dunham shot 5-of-8 from the field and ended with 10 points.
The Capital City Go-Go will play again on Tuesday against the Delaware Blue Coats at 7:00 PM ET.
