Love tBobs interview postgame. Rough game for the stripes: good resilience. If they’ve gotta win the B10 tourney to get in at the end, these random extra points are important in improving your path. Win tomorrow and it’s a winning weekend

Real frustrating game last night. This team flashes and looks outstanding, but oh so clearly young. Really needed that game as you can’t let wins get away from you. Each series like this puts them behind the eight ball more and more where they’ll need to take the B10 tournament
