From The Coach:

"We came into the game knowing that we would have an advantage on the boards, and from the start I thought our guys bought into what we needed to do," commented JWU Head Coach Dan Larkin. "Won the boards by 30 and only surrendered 4 offensive rebounds. I'm proud of how selfless and together our group is playing, it has been really fun to watch them grow as a unit."
