Head Coach, Paul Trevor, explained his thoughts about the team’s performance. “Too many turnovers in the second half. We weren’t valuing the ball, we didn’t defend like in the first half.”
“We lost our zip, then they started hitting some shots and we just couldn’t recover,” Trevor said.
“We got to stop turning the ball over. We had too many lazy turnovers. Our execution and our press of our release weren’t good enough tonight,” Trevor said.
Ty Davis (senior, Communication Studies) finished the game with 16 points, 3 assists, and 7-9 in field goal attempts. He had 3 steals and 6 turnovers. Davis shared his thoughts about the game. “Mine is on the team. We scoring and we just need to play our defense.”
“We just got to play harder. I mean, we could play better on the road. We will be fine,” Davis said.
Darius Scott (senior, Criminal Justice) finished the game with 14 points, 3 assists, 4-10 in field goal attempts, 3 steals and 5 turnovers in the game. Scott explained his views about the game. “We just had a lack of focus at the end in the second half. We just didn’t come out the same energy as we did in the first half.”
“I think the most critical thing to improve on is to all stand together and that’s all pulling in and win as a team and that’s what I think will get us a win on the road,” Scott said.
