“We really did play hard tonight. I mean we play hard every night, and that’s what it starts with, defense, and then we got some guys that can really put some pressure on the ball,” head coach Bill Pope said. “Put some pressure on the passes and we just kept the heat up the whole night, and it turns into offense.”

“Our effort the whole game was good. I think our focus on the defensive end...we lost a little focus there in that second quarter and at times,” head coach Terry Millirons said. “We have to correct that before whoever we play in the next round. But overall our effort was really good.”

Finally, George Wythe fell to Honaker in a tight battle, 64-62.
