Head Coach Reggie Witherspoon’s Postgame Comments
“Give Fairfield all the credit tonight. Like they did last night, and pretty much all season, they came out and played hard at both ends of the floor for a full 40 minutes. We did not match their compete-level tonight. These back-to-back games are difficult, but you need to be ready to give maximum effort at both ends of the floor both nights. We didn’t do that this evening.”
Malek Green: 14 points
Majesty Brandon: 13 points
Armon Harried: 10 points, 2 assists
Jacco Fritz: 9 points
