BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"Senior Day is always a special for us. It gives us a chance to let our seniors know how much they mean to us. Our six seniors are a special group. With Kelli Mounce unfortunately out with a knee injury, the other five seniors got the start and really played inspired basketball. We entered the fourth quarter with a six-point lead. We went cold in the fourth and and came up a little short on the scoreboard. I feel good about the effort. I can't say enough about this senior group and the type of people they are. It's been a tough season in terms of wins and losses, but they do things the right way and that's bigger than basketball. They represent Ferrum College in a way that makes me proud." --Head Coach Bryan Harvey
