“To lose the rebounding battle the way we did . . . our guys just didn’t come to compete the way they were supposed to,” said Head Coach Scott Cross, following the game on Saturday night. “We are going to have to do some soul-searching and get back to work on Monday.
“We need to bounce back. We’ve got four games at home. I couldn’t identify with the team that showed up tonight”
