Northrop boys basketball coach Barak Coolman watched as his M*A*S*H unit of team let one get away from them in a 63-53 loss to Concordia on Tuesday.
The Bruins (1-1) led 47-45 after three quarters before being outscored 18-6 in the fourth by the Cadets (2-0).
Northrop has been missing Purdue recruit Bryson Scott for two weeks and Chris Cammack has been battling a bad back for about that same amount of time and left the loss to Cadets in the second half.
But it was the Bruins' decision-making in the fourth that left Coolman with an achy feeling.
"Some of the decision-making we made wasn't good," he said. "We did the same thing at DeKalb (a 52-49 win), and we watched film and talked about it. We told them with a lead you have to be a little more selective, and it is something we have to figure out a change of pace. A shot maybe a decent shot in the first half, but it maybe a horrible shot in the fourth quarter when you are nursing the lead. The fatigue of playing two guards instead of three guards was some of it. You want to finish a team off and take better shots."
Coolman said there was no timetable for Bryson Scott's return.
