The win earned the Spartans the title of the loser’s bracket. The loss dropped the Pats to 2-2 during the tournament.
“We played hard this week,” said NV head coach Roger Butter. “We played Marksville, who beat us by 40 earlier this year, to a seven-point game.
“I thought we would bring that same intensity today.”
The Pats did cut into Comeaux’ lead. Jabian Kern nailed a jumper to bring the Pats within 12 at 20-8 early in the second quarter. Kern finished with eight points. Beau Callahan led NV with 12 points. The Spartans went on cruise control from that point, though.
“They are a good team,” said Butter. “I think we still have some work to do.
“We need to be committed to getting better.”
The Pats will look to get back on track Tuesday as they play host to Midland. Butter said the game will be key for his team.
“I want to see,” said Butter, “how well we bounce back after a loss like this.”
