TEAM COMMENTS

(Tom Allen)
There’s a determination that you have to have and you have to be laser focused and you have to be an individual and a program that isn’t deterred by setbacks because they’re gonna come and one just hit us right in the face today. So how are you gonna respond? I said today was gonna show us a lot well you know what? It wasn’t in the way that i wanted but we’re still gonna find out some things about the Hoosiers.

(Peyton Ramsey)
“It’s frustrating you know you prepare all week, you have a really good week of prep and then to go out and play the way that we did is definitely disappointing but it’s a new week. The season is still so early, so young, we have so many more opportunities.”
