BEHIND THE WHISTLE
“Big win on the road tonight. I thought our kids played hard. Hollins shot the ball extremely well and made it tough on us, but our kids kept their composure and made some big shots down the stretch. We trusted each other and stuck to our game plan. We are getting better every day.” –Head Coach Bryan Harvey
Harvey’s team will be back in action Saturday, February 15, at home against Randolph-Macon College. The ODAC context is set for a 2:00 p.m. tip-off at Swartz Gym.
