"It was a little hectic at times, but I was happy with the way that we finished. That was a fun win. It's a big deal for us and a stepping stone in the right direction. I think it's something we can build off of moving forward. I respect the mess out of coach (Mitch) Morris and all that program has done. I'm just really proud of the effort tonight. I can't say that enough."
