I am very proud of them for continuing to work hard and not giving up when we were sitting at 3-8 a little over two weeks ago. Billy Hancock made some huge threes for us again tonight. Cameron Quick was terrific on the glass. Mitchell McGill played really well for us tonight. Jake Ruzicka had a great second half after being in foul trouble the first half.” -- Coach Kevin Scheef.
