From the Coach: As you go down the stretch here, you want to see who is going to battle through adversity. These are times when you learn a lot about your team and a lot about individuals.
Our veteran guys, especially the guys up front and Travis Hamonic on the back end, they have helped our young guys. I can see the communication level with those guys. They know that they’ve struggled at times and they’ve made mistakes, but they are trying to stay positive with those guys. As coaches, sometimes our demeanor changes, but we have to continue to teach. I am impressed by some of our guys and how they handle the young kids.
