PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES
On the recent win against Belhaven
“It was a great trip. I think the guys had a lot of fun. Our hotel was actually in a great location. We had a big outlet mall on one side and a Bass Pro Shop on the other side. Outside of basketball, the guys had a great time and got to spend some time together just outside of basketball, hanging out and having fun. We put together a great game. We were expecting a tough one going in. We had a big a win over Belhaven here this year. We knew it was going to be tough, but I thought our guys responded really well, came out really hard, shared the ball well, knocked down some big shots against Belhaven’s zone and we were able to come away with a win.”
