What’s Being Said:

  • “The first half was back and forth and a little sloppy for us. We were playing to much ‘hero ball’ and not creating for our teammates. In the third quarter, we played as a team and were extremely hot shooting from all over the floor. It was good to see the team be able to continue to battle through foul trouble, as well.” – Head Coach Bob Austin
