Shock try to bounce back

The Shock were out of sorts Saturday, falling behind Tampa Bay 28-7 at halftime and eventually losing 70-62.

The offense wasn't crisp, the primary topic I addressed in my notebook that will run in Wednesday's S-R, for a number of reasons. Had Spokane hung on to two passes in the end zone during that sloppy first half, the outcome may have been different and I probably would have had to find another topic to explore.

But that was the theme of the first 30 minutes: Spokane failed to execute the way it had in putting together a 5-0 record to open the season. The Shock went back to work Tuesday in preparation for Saturday's road game at Utah, but quarterback Erik Meyer was a spectator with a sore left knee.
