That was a key to the game really. Those are big momentum plays. The early foul trouble hurt us too.

Jones off the bench (Tuesday) was our energy guy. He did a fantastic job for us, causing havoc out there. T.J. Patterson came in and did a fantastic job on Queen. We were struggling with him down low.\u201d Newaygo. is now 5-4 in the league and 6-4 overall.
