BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"Tough loss at home against Virginia Wesleyan. I thought we played well enough defensively to give ourselves a chance to win. We really struggled getting the ball to go through the basket. The effort was there so, we just need to go back and watch film and see where we need to improve on the offensive end to give us better opportunities." --Head Coach Bryan Harvey
Harvey's team will be back in action Tuesday, Dec. 4, at Emory & Henry College. The ODAC game is scheduled for a 7:00 p.m. tipoff in Emory, Virginia.
