Coach Sam McMahon stated, “Yeah the message is just to get better each and everyday. One day at a time one game at a time we got a long ways to go…we got a lot of room to get better, so we got to use this to stay hungry. You know we had a good end to the before Christmas winnin three in a row we got to continue to do that…you know it’s a great league great conference so we just got to keep competing.”

Ndongo Ndaw said, “As a team, I feel like we started understanding now that…if everybody just do what they have to do…and not trying to do too much…we’re going to be fine.”
