Chaps head basketball coach Jordan Dreiling says "I was really pleased with our focus, you know, I think that our effort could have been better, there is going to be some sluggish moments in the game and there definitely was that, but I was really pleased with our focus.  I though that we showed a lot of togetherness. I thought that the guys stayed positive throughout the game. It helped that we shot the ball pretty well then a lot of guys really got going."
