Coach Matt Erdman: stated, “Overall I was pleased with the effort but there has to be a commitment to rebounding on defense every possession. We didn’t value the ball either. When you turn it over 14 times compared to their 4, it’s tough to beat any team let alone a team that makes you pay for every mistake. The focus with our group is learning how to stick to the game plan for 40 minutes on both ends.”
