BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"We had a disappointing loss at home against Shenandoah tonight. They shot the ball extremely well and I thought they played a very disciplined well coached game. We need to be much better defensively if we want to compete in the ODAC. There needs to be a more consistent focus and effort on the defensive end of the floor. We will continue to show up and work hard every day. We are going through a tough stretch right now, and just have to fight our way through it. How you handle tough times shows a lot about who you are and what you are about." --Head Coach Bryan Harvey
Coach Bryan Harvey's team will be back in action Saturday, Jan. 5, at Randolph-Macon College. The ODAC game is scheduled to tip off at 2:00 p.m. in Ashland, Virginia.
