“They’re just, they’re maturing. We’ve had a lot of close games, and pretty much the second halves we’ve been playing better ball but they’re starting to play better, they’re starting to figure it out. And it’s fun to watch them, they came out tonight and they accepted the challenge, they did a good job so i’m proud of them.”

(DEANDRE WILLIAMS)
“The last two games we haven’t been able to keep nobody in frontof us. That’s what we’ve been talking about during halftime and as soon as the game started, we were just preaching defense, defense, defense. And it’s very rewarding, it just shows the growth of our team and our coach and just getting better all the time.”

(JOHN HALL)
“We put in a lot of work every single day. I mean you guys know we work but i don’t know if you know how hard we’re really working. And it’s not over yet, 7-3 it’s real early.”
