“In the first half, (Appleton West) had a lot of offensive rebounds and points in the paint,” Fond du Lac coach Jeff Bell said. “We thought if we cleaned that up and got rid of the easy drives, we’d be in good shape. They bought into that. They worked hard. Appleton West had the size advantage, but we did the little things we were supposed to. Transition points were also huge. We’d get the ball and go.”
