JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH
“I think we were ready to play today. We certainly
know the importance of these games. When you play
a team 14 times and you’re two points away from
each other in the standings, you’re certainly looking at
your season and your opportunity to be in the playoffs.
“I think we did a good job of recognizing that
opportunity. It was a good game. We’re excited for
the two points, but that’s obviously not the last we’re
going to see of them.”
“Last night was a tough win. It could’ve went either
way, but I thought we did enough to win. It says a lot
about our team to come out on a Sunday afternoon
and play a pretty strong game like we did today.
“We did a good job of turning the page from
yesterday. We wanted to come out here and do a lot
of the same things this afternoon and I think we did a
great job of that. ”
