“Our last game was physically and emotionally draining in all kinds of ways. We were out there through the whole quarter of overtime, that’s the physical aspect of it, and then the ups and downs during the game. Then it being Thanksgiving – it was taxing.
“This season has been tough, but we put ourselves in the situation. So the only thing we can do is keep working and finish the season strong.

That’s what everybody strives for to put up those kind of numbers.”
