BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"Great team win tonight. Seeing six guys in double figures is what we want to be about. The unselfishness we demonstrated offensively led to great shots for our team. Defensively, I really felt like we finally put close to 40 minutes together of being locked in. Proud of the effort by everyone. Back to work!" --Head Coach Tyler Sanborn
Sanborn's team will break for Thanksgiving and will return to action Sunday, November 28, at Methodist University. The non-conference game is scheduled for a 2:00 p.m. tip-off in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
