HEAD COACH GREG MOORE
On today’s game:
It wasn’t the result that we wanted but as a staff we were excited about the response our team had right from the start of the game. They stuck to the game plan, they were very diligent with wanting to execute it. The effort and the process were there, we’re proud of the guys tonight.
On how a week at home and practicing will help the team:
It’s going to be really big. It’s been a lot of games which was really good for the development of the guys to feel that grind, to push through, get a lot of game reps, they haven’t played games for a long time. It’s going to be nice to get some rest, get a week of practice and work on some things that will help our players move forward.
