Now we'll see how good a coach I really am.
We had high hopes for this semester with the core nine guys that we had. But based on the academic situation, it forces me to create a whole new offensive and defensive team.
You could see the guys were tired out there. They were not mentally ready to play. And it's a game we could have won - that's the frustrating part.
It's the worst possible time to have these conditions. These are the top teams in the league we are dealing with now. But if we can pull off a 2-3 record, it would give us a solid shot at a playoff spot.
We had an outstanding performance. It was overtime against the defending champions.
Defensive lapses plus, offensively, a failure to convert ultimately did us in. It really just came down to hitting our open shots, and we didn't do that.
We didn't win in the playoffs, but we made it there. That's one step.
