“This was a really nice road win for us.  GICC plays such a deliberate style, that every possession is really important.  We just had to grind it out for 32 minutes and we did that.  I thought our defense was really good tonight.  We were flying around, getting to shooters and making everything tough for them.  Cameron Quick was really tough out top on our 1-3-1.  Jake Ruzicka played really well for us, and Brendan Lacey and Billy Hancock hit some clutch shots for us.” -- Coach Kevin Scheef.
