Head Coach Todd Clark's Postgame Comments
"
Coaches can always be critical after the fact and players can always be critical after the fact, but if we are going to be a good team we will need consistency. Consistency from each player on the field as well as each coach is needed for success. We will have to regroup and refocus as we prepare for Iona on Saturday."
