A tough defensive night for Goodhue
Goodhue's 84-67 loss to Faribault in the opening game of the Red Wing Tip-off Tournament reaffirmed what Wildcats coach Tony Poncelet already knew: His team needs to work on its defense.
"We could have closed out quicker," Poncelet said. "We could have altered some of those shots. They shot well."
The Falcons finished 29 of 57 (50.9 percent) from the field including 9-for-19 from behind the 3-point arc. They also excelled at pushing the ball up the court.
