while Thomas Ellington contributed 13 points in the win.
Ellington said, “I challenged
the guys to do 2 things this week. First I wanted multiple players with double digit rebounds. (In the Gray Stone game we
had 3 guys to do just that. Hicks 12 rebounds, Korbin Reeder 11 rebounds and Jacob Byerly with 11 rebounds). The second thing
was to BELIEVE they could do this, and they responded.”
