“We played with a lot of effort and intensity, which I was proud to see,” Red Oak head boys basketball coach Spencer Plank said. “We struggled to execute in the halfcourt, but that’s something we can work on as the year progresses. We want to peak in early February, so we have some time to iron out the details. The effort should never leave though, and tonight we definitely showed it throughout most of the game.”
