Our guys did a terrific job in having the right mindset, we got better at some things we needed to get better at, one of them being able to create some turnovers and create some offense.off those turnovers. We haven't been doing a very good job of that this year and that was an area we wanted to address and get better at bit of a mark of a good team is to be able to take what we're working on in practice and have it translate into the game. said, Head Coach Leon Rice.
