What’s Being Said:
- “We showed glimpses of being special tonight. We respect Texas College even though the record doesn’t match the energy they play with. Coach Norfleet gets the most out of his guys, we’ve got to continue to do the same, I think we can even get more out of ours. 117 points is probably the season high for us this year, if we can guard the way we score this team could make a serious run. We exceed our average of three pointers made with the 17 threes we hit tonight. I told our assistant coaches today at practice that we need to put up a new net tomorrow, I think we’re about to literally shoot it down from three, it was very loose and guys seemed relaxed so it gave me a good feeling for tonight.” – Head Coach Larry Cordaro
