BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"Just couldn't put together two halves tonight. We shot the ball and defended well in the first half, then couldn't find our rhythm in the second. We've really battled being inconsistent, ultimately we have to figure out how to piece together 40 minutes. Definitely some positives though. We are playing better basketball, but have to fight the lulls." --Head Coach Tyler Sanborn
Sanborn's team will be back in action Saturday, Dec. 1, at Berry College. The non-conference game tips off at 2:00 p.m. in Rome, Georgia.
