As for future improvement, Brynes states, “I just think we need to get more kids involved and develop to get along for the rest of the season so we can step up and play”

Hoy responses to the win as a victory but is cautious for games ahead, “We got to be a lot smarter with the ball, take care of the ball, score and take advantage of possessions when we have them”.
