Comments From Head Coach Ryan Stumbo:

Give Sheldon a lot of credit for how they competed tonight.  We did not take advantage of many things offensively and struggled to put the ball in the hoop to get much rhythm from inside or outside.  We will need to respond, learn, and play better on both sides of the ball as we enter tournament play.
