"Extremely proud of our fight and enthusiasm today. It was a long road trip, but our guys showed up and competed. It was not a perfect game for us execution wise, but we showed a ton of growth in our understanding in what we are trying to accomplish. Unfortunately they made a big shot to win the game." --Head Coach Tyler Sanborn

Sanborn's team will be back in action Wednesday, Dec. 5, at Roanoke College. The Old Dominion Athletic Conference game is scheduled to tip off at 7:00 p.m. at the Cregger Center in Salem, Virginia.
