Coach’s Quote
“We saw a lot of things we need to work on a little bit, but our effort was still good. Miami is a very good team, it was nice to see another MAC opponent and give ourselves a reference point. Our goal the next few weeks is to train as hard as we can and be ready for the conference championship.”
