With a winning streak how do you feel going into the next games?
We have been playing very well on both ends without our leading scorer. We have a team and a program. Guys step up and contribute in a variety of ways. It's what good kids do
How is the team performance even with Ramez not playing?
We have won two games without him. We love him and he's an intricate part of this program. He has academic work to finish and we do things the right way in this program so we will welcome him back when he completes his winter intercession class in biology.
How will the team prepare for the game next week?
Is there anything that might be a challenge playing Bethesda for the first time?
Bethesda is a great team. We are both 3-0 in league, it will be a war Wednesday. This is what college basketball is all about. Lots of fun trying to win titles.
The Warriors will play next on Wednesday, January 18 against Bethesda. The game will tip off at 7pm at home. This will be the fourth league game of the season.
