On the result_
“A little disappointed. You want to win those games at home. Looking back at the game, you try to take away the bright spots. I thought Musa [Ramathan], coming in three days ago, I thought he was pretty solid. Good performance, I thought he was head and shoulders above some of those other guys on the field. Those are the things I take away from the game, barring the result. You always want to win, to create that winning mentality amongst the group. That’s part of what we have to start developing too. How do we figure things out when things aren’t going our way, and solve those problems?”
