"Rough night for us offensively, never could get in rhythm and missed a lot of open opportunities," said Head Coach Tyler Sanborn. "They did a nice job of speeding us up and we played into it. Defensively, we did some good things, but they have so many weapons, and that made them hard to guard. I felt like we had good coverage on a lot of their shots, but they were unconscious from three. They are a very talented team."
Sanborn's team will be back in action Sunday, Nov. 26, at Randolph-Macon College. The non-conference game tips off at 2:00 p.m. in Ashland, Virginia.
