“We had five freshmen play tonight and they played hard; you’re going to have mental mistakes...but I felt like tonight we took a big step...of being more physical and getting after them [Edward Little]. We didn’t play scared...and understood the game better,” remarked coach Matt Perkins. “We’re getting there; when you make mistakes, you’ve got to look at how we fix it, what’s next and it’s all learning. The way that they cranked the whole game, I was just impressed as a package on all of it.”
