“ Tonight we started off really slow, then after that first time out Coach Hammonds laid into us a little bit then we got going . The bench came in and played terrific defense to provide a lift and also hit some big shots down the stretch.”

“... Blake Smith had a heck of a game, one of the best pure scorers that I have played with. And Simon Christon and Chance Cornett locked down their best player.”

“... Total team effort to get the tough road win”

“... Felt like playing back at LC, It’s been awhile since I’ve seen that many Lawrence Co. folk I miss it. Nothing but Love for my hometown and appreciate everyone that came and supported me tonight.”
