  • Glenwood can’t get by Cyclones

    In a basketball game, a 14-point lead may not seem all that different from an 11-point lead. But in the momentum game, that extra three points makes all the difference.

    There seems to be just one thing coaches can’t teach.

    “You can’t ‘teach’ height,” said Glenwood coach Curt Schulte.
