Terry Schwartzkopf:"Today was a mixed bag.  There is no question we are playing better than we were at the beginning of the season, but we still have a long way to go.  I think our best option may be to mix some things up and start fresh, so the next week could be interesting.  We have half a season to go and a lot of work to accomplish.  However, if any team can close that gap in this short of time, it would be these guys.  They are young, but they are hungry to prove themselves. "
"Amazing job once again by Colson Wells and Saketh Kamaraju.  They are having incredible seasons and anchoring this team success."
