Quote Board

"We are excited to return home to conference play. We've talked a lot to the team about preparing for the next five weeks, which determine our opportunity to be able to play in May. It starts off with a very talented Furman team that handled us easily last year. They are 2-0 in conference and well coached. Coach Meade is someone I respect dearly and it's going to be a conference battle Saturday at noon. We hope to have a lot of our fans and alumni out to support us as we continue to develop as a team and look for an opportunity to play in May." – Head Coach John Galloway
