I think one thing that has helped us towards the end of the season is we had a very challenging schedule to start the year. We played three very good teams in Canada and our non conference schedule was strong as well. We also had a lot of tough road games to start the conference season and fought through some injuries. So with that being said we had to get stronger and tougher to survive and to our players credit they did. We started to play better defense, we rebounded better and we took care of the ball, which is usually a good formula to use to win basketball games. You always want to play your best basketball in February and our guys stayed the course and are doing just that." - Eureka head coach chip wilde
I believe we make these late season pushes because we are still getting better as the year goes on. It's a credit to our guys to buy into the things we are talking about on a daily basis as a program, and that is to 1) Focus on getting better every single day, because that is all you can control 2) Invest in the guy next to you and push each other to be the best you can be as individuals and in turn that helps us become a better team. We talk about it being a process and if we are getting better each practice, each film session, each game, and we have a great attitude in doing so, then we are without question going to be better at the end than we were earlier in the season. Our guys are excited for the opportunity to compete and represent our community, alumni, and institution as a whole in the SLIAC Tournament." - blackburn head coach steve kollar
