Quoting Coach Bill McDonald
“Keenan had a solid tournament and it was nice to see Scott’s form return today. Otherwise, this team, and our coaching staff, has a lot of work to do if we intend to be competitive at a high level. I am looking forward to the next few weeks to see how our guys respond to adversity and disappointment.”
