Head Coach Gregg Burke's Take

  • We got a lot out of the freshmen in the first round and a great round out of Dawson in the afternoon. Other than that, we really did not play well. 
  • The scores were high for everyone because we had to battle that huge front that came through. but it affected everyone.
  • Tomorrow cones down to pride.
