What’s Being Said

  • “I was impressed with our team’s grit and tenacity following a tough road loss to OLLU (Our Lady of the Lake University). Everyone contributed in one way or another. 24 assists with only 10 turnovers is always a good recipe for a win. Sprinkle in 63% from the field and 80% from 3 and you’re a tough team to keep up with. Great win but still need to keep our focus as conference play continues.” Head Coach Bob Austin
