From The Coach:

"Excellent effort by our club tonight. We defended as well as we have all season in the first half," commented Head Coach Dan Larkin. "We're still fighting to put together two dominant halves. It's easy to get complacent when we build first half leads like we've been able to do, but being able to extend those leads are where we have to grow as a team."

The Wildcats will travel to Bob Jones University on Jan. 29th for a 7:00 pm tip-off.
