What Coach Says:
Coach Richard Westerlund said on today's game, "I was very disappointed with how casual we were in the first half. Once we jumped out to our hot start we stopped doing what was working for us. We were casual with the ball, and did not contest shots. We need to compete for forty minutes. I am looking forward to having a full week of practice so we can really sharpen things up and improve over the course of this week. We still have goals that we can accomplish this season." On cold shooting performance from 3, "We have to get in the gym. We have to get the reps. This team is capable, but we have to be willing to put the work in."
