“They probably feel that too, it’s probably not frustrating, but disappointing, I don’t want them to be discouraged. They are doing what they should do, which is to keep competing. They won’t quit and I’m proud of them for that.”

(SAM CUNLIFFE)
“It’s tough changing coaches. 3 of them in the middle of the year, so I think they (the fans) understand that. They are trying to show us that that support. We are just dying to give them something back.”

(EVAN KUHLMAN)
“It does feel like we are so close. I like we crawled back from the 1st half. Guys didn’t hang their heads, We got back into it. It seems like every game we play now, we are four or five points closer, but that’s not good enough. We have to focus on the scouting report and do the little things better and we will get a win.”

Evansville will be at Drake on Sunday.
