"“Everybody’s disappointed whenever you go through something like this, which obviously nobody wants to go through losses like this. We have to learn from the past, we have to grow from this. I think anytime anybody goes through something difficult, it’s where you see the most growth. Our guys have to realize how we got to this point. It’s through energy every day and finding ways to get better. We have to utilize this and that’s what I told our coaches.”"
