"We shot 12 of 19 from the free-throw line," Scanlon said. "This was a good game to get back home and get in the win column. We went with our big line-up, which seems to be much more successful and got us off to a good start. Having Alec Ramsdell in there makes a huge difference for us and provides us with a physical factor. We really had a great second quarter outscoring them 24 to 6 which opened the game up for us. When you hold a team to 37, it means your defense is getting much better."
