HUNTINGTON BEACH — It wasn't looking pretty for Ocean View in the early stages of Thursday's girls' basketball nonleague game against Laguna Beach. No, not with the visiting Breakers starting to quickly pull away in the second half — and seemingly comfortably, too, from what had been a close game.
The Seahawks were struggling on offense, giving up some easy buckets defensively, and appeared to be heading toward their ninth defeat of the season after digging themselves into an 11-point hole.
"This is where we struggle," Ocean View Coach Kim Morris said of her team's offensive woes that began late in the second quarter and extended till the midway point of the third quarter. "We weren't setting things up offensively and we were flat. But I told the girls that they just gotta stay with it. It was a matter of them changing their mentality."
