COACH ROSS DOUMA SAID
“Sometimes our youth and inexperience hurts us that we’re a little up and down on the floor but because we are young we have that short memory and we were able to come back and fight really well today. It was probably the most complete defensive game we’ve played this year which is really good to see. Chandler Brunsting is really stepping up and being a good leader. He’s playing really well to his ability, makes the hustle plays—had 12 boards last night and today came out and got us started. He’s just got an edge about him and he’s really beginning to play well for us.”
