Head Coach Lee Cigliano said, "I think our guys gained some confidence having success this week and understand that we are capable. But at the same time, my hope is they also understand the level of effort needed in practice each day, whether we are out there 30 minutes or 2 hours, in order to improve.  The season is still very young but I'm pleased with our start.  Ultimately as a coach you want your team to be competitive and do all the things necessary to get to the level of the competition that our opponents and conference demand. There really isn't an area that we can't improve on- Half-Court Offense, Half-Court Defense, Transition Defense, Rebounding, etc.  We need to be better if we want to have a successful season."

Next up, the Cougars will travel to Macon, GA to take on Central Georgia Techinical College at 7:30 PM EST.
