“Well our guys understand that nobody is feeling sorry for us. We have to continue to work and continue to get better. And that’s what we will do. To get out of a funk it has to start within yourself. You can’t let small things bother you. Missing a shot shouldn’t bother you and shouldn’t translate to how hard you play defense.

“We get too down on ourselves and it just affects our whole game and defensively. As a team, we don’t want to do anything. we have to change. We can score as games show prior, we average 80 points a game, we people to come in and play defense.”

(MARCUS HENDERSON)
“We are just playing catch up the whole entire game, which is not a good way to continue the game. We need to come out strong, we need to get stops and we need to get up and keep the energy going from there.”
