“It came down to we couldn’t guard anybody tonight. No matter what defense we were in, Jacksonville got in the lane.”

“We just have to keep working and get better defensively. We have to be patient. I understand the process.”

“We have a month to get ready for conference play.”

NOTES: This was Tabb’s sixth 20-point game of the season .. Tabb matched his season-high with 6 3FGs. So did the team with 9 … B-CU’s 29 rebounds were a season low.
