One day after the San Luis Obispo High girls basketball team struggled on offense in a season-opening loss, the Tigers bounced back for a 55-35 win over Morro Bay on Friday night at the Ruth Doser Tournament in Atascadero.
San Luis Obispo scored 25 points in a 46-25 loss to Aquinas, and Tigers coach Dan Monroe said they shot “15 percent from the floor.”
But against the Pirates, after a slow start, the Tigers started scoring. San Luis Obispo put up 21 points in the fourth quarter in the win.
“We had a slow start but we picked it up,” Monroe said. “I think we finally found our rhythm offensively in the second half.”
