There was one big difference, Seymour girls basketball coach Jason Longmeier said, in Saturday afternoon’s home game against Whiteland.
“I thought they out-executed us,” Longmeier said after the Warriors left the Lloyd E. Scott Gymnasium with a 65-45 non-conference win.
“They knocked some shots down early on, and they got some confidence,” Longmeier said. “No. 3 (Kaitlyn Phillips) hadn’t been playing for them, and she’s back.
“She’s healthy, and she was a big boost for them. She took the ball-handling responsibilities that (Jordyn Francis) had been taking, and we thought we could take advantage of some things.
“We missed a lot of easy shots. Does that make a difference in a 20-point game?
“It makes it awful interesting down the stretch where you’re fighting to come back from 20, and you’re fighting to come back from six or seven.”
