COACH'S COMMENT

“... We started out 11-2 then we kept sending them to the foul line and to their credit, they went 11-16 on foul shots in the first half. Neither of us seemed to be able to buy a bucket from the floor.”

“... I think the layoff hurt us. We will try it again tomorrow. We don’t have time to hang our heads. We play 7 games in 7 days thanks to the snow.”

PLAYER'S COMMENTS

“ Tonight we started off really slow, then after that first time out Coach Hammonds laid into us a little bit then we got going . The bench came in and played terrific defense to provide a lift and also hit some big shots down the stretch.”

“... Blake Smith had a heck of a game, one of the best pure scorers that I have played with. And Simon Christon and Chance Cornett locked down their best player.”

“... Total team effort to get the tough road win”

“... Felt like playing back at LC, It’s been awhile since I’ve seen that many Lawrence Co. folk I miss it. Nothing but Love for my hometown and appreciate everyone that came and supported me tonight.”
