FROM THE COACH:
“I like playing Calvary University. Last year we played them at the end of a 3 games in 3 days trip. It was by far one of our best games of the season, even though we lost it. So having them come to Providence for a rematch was a great opportunity for our returning players, and myself to show some improvements. We started the game at a weird pace, as did Calvary. The players of both teams made a lot of turnovers and miss shots. Calvary reacted better than us in the second quarter of the game, while our team dove into a terrible scoring quarter, bringing only 9 points in 10 minutes. The rest of the game we fought back to catch the lead. We won the third quarter, but not with enough scoring to make a difference at the end of the game. I know that it’s still early in the season and that having so many new players in the team required some time to find chemistry, but we must react quickly to become a more competitive team. We are travelling for 3 games this weekend, winning on the road is difficult, but we must find a way to show up at Faith on Friday, and show a strong face.
Lucas Mack: “This weekend was a great opportunity for us with a few ups and downs. I think our team shows a lot of different individuals showing off their skills. I think we did a good job as a team running our plays. In the second quarter, our offence was lacking a lot, which is something we need to improve. On the other end of the court our defence was better, holding Calvary under 80 points. Even though we didn’t get the outcome we wanted, I feel the team is definitely improving from even the last game we played.“
