From The Coach:

Head Coach Dan Larkin on the win: "Thought we did a great job of handling the pressure in the 1st half. We controlled the boards and that allowed us to build a lead going into halftime. We're still working on building leads.  I think more consistency with our shot selection and defensive intensity when we're up will only allow us to progress and grow as a team."

Up Next:

The Wildcats will travel to Warren Wilson College on Jan. 26th for an EMAC showdown. That game is slated for a 4:00 pm tip-off.
