Quote Board

 "We have broken down the season into four quarters, and the guys rallied around that. Now we are in the third quarter and have an opportunity to play a High Point team that is figuring themselves out, but is known for being tough. We are going to have to keep a cool head. It's going to be a hot and beautiful day on Saturday.

As a team, we have to figure out what can we do to take the next step and be deserving of a playoff spot. What's the price you pay to dance in May?

Senior Day will be exciting to honor. I've only been with them for a year but they have led this program in so many different ways. This is a group that was willing to sacrifice for us and becayse of that, I think they will help us lead down this stretch of the season."– Head Coach John Galloway
