What Coach Says:

Coach Westerlund said, "Our offense did not create many good looks. We were very stagnant offensively against their zone. I appreciated the way our guys competed but we need to do a better job at putting the ball in the hoop." Coach Westerlund also said, "Seamus Anglin and Blake Stephens played very well today. I thought they did a great job for us. As a team we need to value the basketball a lot better. You cannot give teams 30 points off of turnovers and expect to win. I believe in this group we just need to focus on the details offensively and defensively. We will continue to embrace the process."
