That little run in the first half, I guarantee in the first game it would have went to a 35-point game, instead our kids were resilient and got it to three at half. We’re a young, inexperienced team that has to get better night in and night out. We’ll get plenty of wins at some point, but I know the type of team we’ll be at the end of the year and it’s going to be a fun one to watch.”
