BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"Frustrating result in the second half. Once again, we were in the mix and competing well for the first 20 minutes and then then they went on a big run to start the second half. Credit them, they made tough shots from the perimeter. Ultimately, that was the difference in the game. Hard to beat teams when they make 18 threes, 10 of which came in the second half." --Head Coach Tyler Sanborn
Sanborn's team will be back in action Wednesday, Jan. 9, at home against Randolph College. The Old Dominion Athletic Conference game gets underway at 7:00 p.m. in Swartz Gym.
