COACH ROSS DOUMA SAID
"I thought we did a lot of things well today. Take a look at the rebounding and we came up with 17 offensive rebounds which is effort. We forced 26 turnovers--that's effort. We practiced really well yesterday and were intent on coming here and playing well but we were 25-71 from the floor and we didn't get the chance to exert pressure if we don’t make baskets and we went through a stretch in the second half where we weren't making baskets."
The Defenders will host Hastings on Saturday, February 10
