"We were a little sluggish and turn the ball over way too much tonight but this team always seems to find a way to win," said Grace Head Coach Gary Bailey.

I felt like we executed the game plan really well but we just need to clean up some unforced errors."
"I am always so proud of this group. Great sportsmanship on the floor, and high character guys off the court," added Coach Bailey.
