"We haven't played in a couple of weeks, and I was hoping they would come out with a lot of energy and effort. We shot the ball really well. That is one thing we really focused on at practice over the break. We were shooting 23 percent from three-point range, and I told them we have to up that. We have to take more threes and make more threes in order to be a team that can compete at the state tournament. Defensively we locked in, and I was I was just really happy with the effort. That's all I wanted was effort," Hauser said.
