Congrats Chris on the 70-59 win over CNBS. It was the fifth win in a row. Is the team peaking now?

We are very happy with our wins. I think we are coming together nicely right on time to have a good playoff run. We have been working hard and have been focused to turn things around for the better.

Talk a little about the 40 minutes. What phase of the game do you feel did you have the game won? You had 6 turnovers more but dominated the boards.

It was a very ugly game for us. We even went down 8 and it looked like the game was slipping away from us. We just stayed at it and understood we are a different team. It felt good to grab a win like this despite our poor play most of the game.

This seemed to be a real team effort as there was no huge scorer on your team, but it was well balanced.

Yes the ball was moving everyone did what was best for the team to win. For a lot of us it wasn’t our night individually but as a team we got it done.

The teams shot a combined 5/21 from outside. Was it just a lot of bricks or good defense on the line?

Just seemed like one of those days where shots didn’t fall. No excuses but I know that won’t happen again .

I think this was one of your games where you weren’t happy with how you played but just happy the team came together to get the big win.

Yes exactly we are clicking and have been doing what it takes to put that W on the board . Some games I perform well some not as well as I’d like . Most times I’m angry at my play if I don’t have a game that is up to my standards but I’m always happy with the victory

Your last regular season game is against Pully who you lost by 35 points early in the season. Will we see a different kind of game?

I never played against this team. We have respect for them and understand they haven’t been beaten. At the same time we aren’t the same team and would love to see how we match up against them.

What has been your biggest March Madness surprise?

FDU for sure New Jersey is always doing something special. Basketball needs New Jersey.

Thanks Chris for the chat.
