Great comebacks not enough for J-B boys

Article Image Alt Text
PERU - The Johnson-Brock Eagles were within eight points of their opponents at the end of their games at the Peru State College Holiday Tournament, but couldn’t pull out wins in either one.  “We had great comebacks in each
game, but we just haven’t quite been able to put an entire game together yet,” said J-B Head Coach Nick Krenk. “We are getting there as a team, but we need to have a consistent high effort game in, and game out. We have gotten a lot better, but we just need to keep improving.”
