"We're still learning how to be a team that plays with everything we've got. It's never excusable to go out and give less than 100% effort. That's what we saw from the first half. In the second half, the team played more like a team trying to give max effort. If we can get the team to play more like we did in the second half for a full 90 minutes, then we're moving in the right direction, and we may surprise everyone in the postseason." -- Head Coach James Lofton

Lofton's team will close out reguar season play Saturday, Oct. 27, at Lynchburg College. The ODAC game is set for a 7:00 p.m. in Lynchburg, Virginia.
