Head Coach Nate’s Oats Comments after the game

“I think our second half was as good as any we’ve played this year. It’s good to get there before we hit the road to Seattle. I think the intensity of our defense is that. We always told our boys to just lose yourself in the game, the attack would take care of itself.Our defense really started to struggle towards the end of the first half. We did it. Shots and possession, half and turned that number into 18 assists and four goals in the second half. I’m very happy for our players and I think our game has gotten better. a lot. It would be great to beat Iona and win the championship, but sometimes you have to work hard to learn from it. I think as the tournament went on we improved throughout. It’s up to you to keep improving. want to see at this point.”
