We shot the ball well, moved the ball and wasn’t stagnant on offense. Was happy for Anthony Lovins and Steven Ward. Shows maturity on their part to come out prepared and focused. Will have a tough one Saturday vs St. Joe big section game for us.”
“… Want to wish the Cheerleaders good luck tomorrow at Marshall we will be there to support before we play.”
