"“Anytime you can play in Tampa and see so many Bearcats fans is a beautiful thing. I thought we played really good basketball in the first 30 minutes. It’s human nature to relax a little bit. I don’t think we finished the game the way I would like but I’m pleased overall. David DeJulius was phenomenal and Landers Nolley II was very efficient. Mika Adams-Woods did a great job defending Tyler Harris as well.”"
